Foreign investment should be brought into the country taking into account public interests, said Alexander Lukashenko during his working trip to Mogilev region March 21.
The President visited the free economic zone Mogilev, where about 40 residents are currently working.In particular, the company Kronospan where chipboards are made.
For six years, the owner has invested nearly a billion dollars in the Belarusian companies. The region plans to further attract foreign capital.
Alexander Lukashenko was also reported on the socio-economic situation in the region. There is positive dynamism, however, much remains to be done. The President demanded to perform basic tasks: employment, increase in the average salary and economic growth.
Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus:
Keep in mind that it is necessary to perform these indicators. Otherwise you will fail all three social tasks I mentioned: pricing, unemployment, which we do have (it is necessary to employ more people), and wages. Where will you take it all from if your production facilities don't work? You are reporting well, it's ok, but keep in mind: the first deadline for you is the first quarter, then by the end of H1 2017 it may be a disaster for you. By the end of the year, I will take drastic measures, starting from the assistant and ending with all the chiefs in the Mogilev regional executive committee.
Alexander Lukashenko was also informed about the spring field works. The Mogilev region increased areas for winter crops this season. Machinery and equipment is ready for sowing campaign.
