PM comments on Belarus’ economic performance in January-May

MINSK, 17 June (BelTA) -  We have met four main indicators of social and economic development out of five, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko reported to President Aleksandr Lukashenko on 17 June, BelTA has learned.

"As we are approaching the H1 mark, I would like to report to you on the country’s economic performance," the head of government said.

The president said that he would return to the topic at the end of H1. 
"We have the data for January-May. We already see how six months will turn out and, in general, we are projecting the results of the year. In January-May we met four main indicators of social and economic development out of five: GDP rose by 5.2%; investments – by 9.6%; real incomes of the population (which is very important) – by 9.8%, and the consumer price index remained within the projected scenario of 2.8%," Roman Golovchenko said.

As for the fifth export growth indicator, the country has not yet reached the desired results. But the numbers are still higher than last year's. In January-May exports went up by 2.1%. "We fell a little short of the 4% growth target. In terms of physical volume exports surged by 8.7%," the prime minister reported.
