MINSK, 23 February (BelTA) – Belarusian industry and agriculture showed growth in January 2021, Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said at a meeting of the Council of Ministers on 23 February, BelTA has learned.
“GDP in January stood at 101.3% against the same period last year. Industrial output showed a good result of 108.5%. Agriculture also worked well - 100.2%. Investment, however, is still below last year's level (94.7%), primarily due to lower investment costs,” said Roman Golovchenko.
“Dealing with the solution of current issues, we must not lose sight of the main vectors laid down for the new five-year plan. This is stimulation of consumption and rational import substitution, the start of a new investment cycle and the implementation of the export strategy,” the prime minister said.
