Alexander Lukashenko about Orsha district development

Orsha district was at the center of attention during Alexander Lukashenko’s working meeting. President Lukashenko opened the question of development in this area many times before. The establishment of a strong agroholding in Kopys and modernization of Orsha instrument plant are among the assignments.

Towns with large plants, beneficial geographical position and big population must be the locomotive of regional development. As Alexander Lukashenko emphasized, then there will be no problems with overpopulation in Minsk and regional centers. It will also improve the living standards.

Alexander Lukashenko, President of the Republic of Belarus:
Primary attention should be paid to industrial plants. They all need to be restored. People must work there. All these plants are needed; they produce goods we all need. However, the government must make a decision and undertake measure during a year, maximum one year and a half and finish restoring these plants. It is necessary to change the situation in Orsha district this year. It will solve the main social issues– employment, salaries; it will also affect the price determination and prices in shops. Orsha, Baran, Bolbasovo are the three well-known points. Measures must be undertaken concerning all the issues.
