Lukashenko believes in Belkoopsoyuz's huge potential

MINSK, 8 October (BelTA) – Belkoopsoyuz has a huge potential, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the general meeting of the Belarusian National Union of Consumer Societies Belkoopsoyuz on 8 October, BelTA has learned.

During the meeting the head of state outlined problems related to the performance of consumer societies and possible ways to address them. The president said that his instructions are not only for the new head of Belkoopsoyuz but also for the government, oblast executive committees and the relevant departments.

“We are all in the same boat. If it starts rocking from side to side and God forbid overturns, no one will be able to hide. Everyone will have to answer. It cannot be otherwise. Remember, Belkoopsoyuz was created by people and for people. Your system has a huge potential. No one can change my mind about that. You can compete in all areas. The main thing is not to sit idly, to be proactive, and to apply the most modern approaches and business ideas,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president believes that the Belarusian National Union of Consumer Societies have all necessary resources for this, including infrastructure, highly-qualified personnel and state support. “Work hard, give results. Start simple. Let the profitability be 3%, 5%, 10%. Secure a salary of Br800, then Br900, Br1000. Every year you have to show positive dynamics. The country is not standing still, so you have to run ahead. This is impossible without discipline and order. Take a look if all the personnel are in their places, if everyone equally understands the need to work day and night to catch up and develop further,” the head of state said.

“If you lose your place, you will have to work for those chains and those swindlers that I have to put in their place in Minsk. Take care of the place you have. It is your place, where you can earn money and provide for your families. The control over the consumer societies remains with the government, oblast executive committees and Minsk City Hall. I expect to hear about the first results of the work done in 2021 in Q1 2022,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
