Georgy Grits: Decree No.7 plays a tactical role

What needs to be done for business to develop in Belarus was discussed at the CTV talk show "What's going on?"

Georgy Grits, Deputy Chairman of the Belarusian Scientific and Industrial Association:
A colleague said that it is a strategic decree aimed at strategic aims. I think that the strategy there is far away. It is more likely that Decree No. 7 is an error correction of the previous period. It carries a tactical role. The fact that the number of small and medium businesses in the country will be 50% by 2030- that is not a strategy. Why? Because today... I will take only one segment- wholesale. Today 80% od wholesale go through small and medium organizations. And 50% from this sum are small orgainzations.

It is a class of clear intermediaries the President spoke about.

And what, do we want small and medium organizations to occupy 100% in trade? No, if we are speaking about strategy, we need to speak about not only the figures, we need to speak about the growth and place of small and medium businesses in the concept of the country's competitivity. This is a German or an Austrian model. Large organizations determine the strategy, and small and medium businesses should be surrounding them. This is how the 80% of the GDP is formed.
