Unity of the nation nay be the central idea of the 5th Belarusian People's Congress, Rector of the Academy of Public Administration under the auspices of the President of Belarus Marat Zhilinsky said.
“It is not just a meeting. It is a conversation of the authorities with people,” Marat Zhilinsky noted. “I think the main message of the Belarusian People's Congress will be the theme of our unity. If we are united, if we are together, we will be able to deal with anything, despite ups and downs and economic difficulties. Thanks to this we will achieve successes which will be a natural result of the development of our nation and people. This is not an invention of some kind. It comes from life and is determined historically,” the Rector said.
Marat Zhilinsky thinks that the congress will discuss the most important political, social and economic issues. “Of course, the congress will be a report back by the authorities over the past few years,” he said.
The 5th Belarusian People's Congress will be held in Minsk on 22-23 June. The agenda will include the issues concerning the social and economic development program of the Republic of Belarus in 2011-2015 and the major guidelines of the country's social and economic development program for 2016-2020. It is expected that the event will be attended by 2,500 people.
