Belarusian government urged to keep its guard up amid sanctions

MINSK, 10 March (BelTA) – Everything must be fine-tuned for even more effective work, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the government meeting to discuss the country's economic performance in 2022 and to map out plans to address social and economic development tasks for 2023, BelTA has learned.

The head of state urged the rational use of financial resources: "We need to save money. It's not the first year that I've been working, and I have intuition in this regard."

The president called everyone to keep their guard up amid sanctions. "We must not let our guards down...," he said.

"I asked you to ensure economic growth. The government, governors, the entire vertical of power are asked to contribute to the economy," Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “We will solve all other issues. So mobilize everything and carry on what we did last year when they imposed these sanctions on us."

The head of state stressed that everyone must work as effectively as possible. “We know where to go and what to do. We will cope with the situation,” the Belarusian leader said.

The president stressed that it was necessary to spend money rationally within ministries and departments. Aleksandr Lukashenko cited an example of a large number of training centers on the basis of departments. He said that it would be more effective to run such courses at the existing universities.

The president demanded to address all issues in every department, including in the law enforcement services.

“We have to put everything in perfect order,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.
