To have more new jobs we need to create the conditions for the development of small and medium-sized businesses, Boleslav Pirshtuk, Deputy Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus, said in an interview with the RTR-Belarus TV channel on 11 March, BelTA has learned.
Today the main aim is to finalize Decree No. 3 on the prevention of social dependency, Boleslav Pirshtuk said.
“There are no ideal documents. The decree is no exception. We need to polish the document, to finalize it. It was wrong that the people who did not deserve it fell within the remit of the document. However, the document has not been scrapped. It will remain in force,” Boleslav Pirshtuk said. He stressed that “one of the most important tasks is to create jobs.”
“I would suggest taking a wider look at this topic. We must continue to create the conditions, particularly for small and medium business. In plain language, we should give more freedom. For example, a small company has opened. It has rented out a facility, tidied it up and is trying to take off. Why do they inspect this company in a month or two distracting it from work?” Boleslav Pirshtuk said. According to him, small and medium-sized enterprises are more flexible, more responsive, and less vulnerable in the face of stiff competition. Large enterprises should continue optimization policies, search for new methods of work, learn to earn.
Boleslav Pirshtuk noted that lawmaking is a continuous process. However, every new parliament considers fewer and fewer documents. Not because it works worse but because the primary legislative framework has been developed. However, there are laws and there is a current situation that is changing. So is the market and challenges. New phenomena come up, for example, securities market. We are examining the issues regarding the reforming of enterprises, public-private partnerships. Today the law passed the first reading. We want private partners to be involved in addressing the state tasks as well,” Boleslav Pirshtuk said. Thus, he said, legislators need to be proactive and create the conditions for stable work of the real sector of the economy.
