In accordance with the decree, just like with the procedure envisaged in Decree No. 178 of 27 March 2008 for foreign trade operations, the term during which a lessor has to ensure the receipt of leasing payments as part of an agreement, the return of a leasing item in case an international leasing agreement is terminated or cancelled has been increased from 90 days to 180 days.
The decree limits the liability for damage of the state enterprise Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant to 150 special drawing rights per nuclear incident. Public liability insurance has been chosen as a form of collateral for the responsibility of the company in charge of operating the Belarusian nuclear power plant.
Belarus is ready to promote comprehensive trade and economic cooperation with Hungary, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto on 14 January.
Alexander Lukashenko remarked: “Those are not simple years because, sincerely speaking, we will be sorely tested in these two years. If we talk about specifics, whether we deserve the independence we talk about all the time or not will be tested.”
Government support can be provided in exceptional cases upon the approval of the president and only in the form of a budgetary loan for implementing investment projects that successfully passed a comprehensive state examination.
