MINSK, 25 May (BelTA) – The Belarusian government focuses on four priorities in its work amid sanctions. First Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Nikolai Snopkov mentioned it during a joint session of the House of Representatives and the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus, BelTA has learned.
Nikolai Snopkov said: “The government has to prevent the situation from deteriorating in order to keep economic performance at last year's level. We've identified four main priorities. We shape our work bearing them in mind.”
Ensuring the uninterrupted operation of commercial entities is the first one. The redirection of export flows and import substitution are the second and third ones. The government also has to support the population.
“Concrete packages of measures are being worked out in each area. Some of them are already reflected in presidential decree No.93 and the comprehensive plan of top-priority measures on supporting the economy. I'd like to emphasize once again: the comprehensive plan of top-priority measures was prepared in tight cooperation with the parliament, the private sector, public organizations, and citizens,” the official stressed.
