SHKLOV DISTRICT, 22 June (BelTA) – It is necessary to raise the average salary in Belarusian agriculture up to Br1,000 within two years. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko gave the relevant instructions during the government conference in Shklov District, Mogilev Oblast on 22 June, BelTA has learned.
Alexander Lukashenko said: “I think next year the oblast governors – they are primarily responsible for the countryside – will have to raise [the average salary in agriculture] to Br800 instead of Br600. And you should get ready for it. It doesn't mean everyone will get higher salaries but only those, who do their jobs. In a couple of years we should reach the average salary of Br1,000 in agriculture, too.”
“However hard it can be, we cannot avoid it. The best agricultural enterprises have already reached this goal. Why can't the other ones do the same? They can! Only if they do it right. It is necessary to follow the technological process and maintain discipline from blue collar workers to the head of the agricultural enterprise,” added the Belarusian leader.More about President
