MINSK, 30 November (BelTA) – The task of the government is to reinforce the positive trends in the economy in 2023, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said during a meeting with deputies of the House of Representatives and members of the Council of the Republic in the Oval Hall, BelTA has learned.
"The task of the government is to promote the positive trends in the economy until the end of the year and in 2023. The work on a package of forecast documents was based on these principles," Roman Golovchenko said.
As for the country's social and economic development forecast for 2023, it is based on the economic growth figures provided for by the program of social and economic development for the five-year period. "Decree No. 411 of the President of the Republic of Belarus dated 28 November 2022 sets the following important parameters for 2023: gross domestic product growth at 3.8%, growth in real disposable cash incomes of households at 4.1% and in investments in fixed assets – at 22.3%, exports of goods and services – at 5.5%," the prime minister said.
"These indicators make account for the context of resource mobilization and development of a sanctions-proof economy," Roman Golovchenko added. “The National Bank and the government are expected to take measures to restrict the inflation to 7-8%. To achieve the most important parameters envisaged in the decree, the government will approve a target plan for social and economic development for 2023."
