MINSK, 7 February (BelTA) – The government and banks must solve the cross-border payments problem, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting to discuss the bill to amend the banking laws, BelTA has learned.
The head of state said he was not satisfied with the work of the government and banks on payments under foreign trade operations.
"We can supply products and so on ... The government and banks will report soon on their work on payments. We need to roll up our sleeves and work," Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. “The National Bank and banks in general must join in the effort to solve the problem of payments. This should not be a problem. We are just not putting enough effort. Belarusian private companies show us the example of how to work."
