Belarusian government urged to keep inflation within 6% in 2022

MINSK, 3 December (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko demanded measures to curb inflation in 2022 as he spoke at the government meeting on 3 December to discuss the country's social and economic development, BelTA has learned.

“Issues related to the monetary policy have always been discussed in some kind of a simplified format. It cannot be like that this time. High inflation is the most discussed topic at the moment,” the Belarusian leader said. The president stressed that there are arguments that inflation is ‘imported', but there is no need to focus on them only.

“We plan to have a single-digit inflation of 6% next year,” said the head of state.

Addressing the chairman of the National Bank, the president asked to report on the measures planned to curb inflation. “Remember: this should not go to the detriment of the country's economic development, which you monitor together with the prime minister. Outline what measures are envisaged to support economic growth in 2022.”
