Belarus prime minister wants industrial park construction in Pinsk expedited

PINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – It is necessary to expedite the construction of an industrial park in Pinsk. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko gave the relevant instruction during a conference held on 1 March to review progress in implementing the program on accelerated social and economic development of the city of Pinsk, BelTA has learned.

Roman Golovchenko pointed out that the decision to build the industrial park was made in late 2022. “Regretfully, we are still at the paperwork stage. This is why I have firmly demanded to accelerate the approval of all the design documents and permissions so that at least the first few premises of the park would be commissioned this year. Moreover, the demand for them is in place. I have no doubt that this territory will enjoy a very strong demand and will be a vital source of growth for the economy and development of the city of Pinsk,” the prime minister stressed.

Pinsk is home to about 125,000 people. The city has a lot of enterprises. According to the head of government, industrial development offers most of the economic growth opportunities in the region. “They primarily rely on investments, renewal of the plant and equipment, on the ability to make popular, modern, and profitable products,” Roman Golovchenko explained. “It is necessary to continue investing in the renewal of plant and equipment, in expanding the manufacturing capacity of enterprises.”

The prime minister remarked that the region saw insufficient investments in 2020-2022. The situation changed for the better in 2023. The “One district – one project” program had a positive effect. As an example Roman Golovchenko mentioned the Pinsk-based battery factory he had visited earlier that day. “It is a high-tech manufacturing facility. Everything that has already been done there and will be made in the next few years is based on the ‘One district – one project’ program. The terms the state has offered turned out to be in great demand and profitable for owners of the enterprises. Today we saw how this program works in reality,” the head of government said.

The prime minister underlined the importance of investing not only in manufacturing but also in infrastructure. Pinsk did rather well in this area last year. Projects slated for implementation according to a government investment program and a regional investment program were implemented. Roman Golovchenko is convinced the investments will produce results.
