IVYE DISTRICT, 21 August (BelTA) – I plan to visit remote towns in every oblast, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said during his working trip to Ivye District in Grodno Oblast on 21 August, BelTA has learned.

The head of state said that he had come to Ivye District with big concerns about Grodno Oblast's mistake to focus on the development of its western parts. Some impetus, however, has been recently given to the area around Ostrovets thanks to the ongoing construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant. Little attention, though, was paid to Ivye District and some others.

“I would like to show with this visit to Ivye that the suburbs of every oblast also need to be developed,” the head of state stressed.

The president said that regional development is in full swing in the country, and recently the head of state visited the southeast of Mogilev Oblast, the east of Gomel Oblast, Vetka District, in particular, where a lot of efforts have been invested to restore the potential of the Chernobyl-hit regions.

“I would like to visit areas such as Ivye District, or Glusk in Mogilev Oblast, or Kopyl in Minsk Oblast, which are not GDP-forming, but our people live there. I would like to visit remote towns in every oblast,” the president said.

The head of state traditionally asked about the progress in the harvesting campaign – gathering of grain, corn and other crops. “Nine million tonnes of grain [including corn and rape] is a lower margin for you,” the head of state said.

“We need to put a stop to plastic bags. We need to start with small steps and get rid of them. We are littering the soil and our territory, and our green and blue-eyed Belarus would soon become a dump,” the Belarusian leader stressed.

We need to encourage people to go into the woodworking business, in particular in the areas where we have a great amount of raw materials. We should not just suggest that businesses start something. We need to help them and take care of their needs, Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “I'd expected worse but I am very glad that the place is very good. But peaceful life is the most important thing. I often tell people not to seek fortunes somewhere else because they are not welcome there."
