Lukashenko: Brains are the main asset of Belarusians

MINSK, 20 May (BelTA) – The main asset of Belarusians are their brains, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with activists of Belarus' pioneer organization on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the pioneer movement, BelTA has learned.

“We need all kinds of competencies. We do not have so many natural resources to live on: oil, gas, gold, metals, and so on. We buy them all. And we provide for ourselves thanks to people's brains. Therefore, our brains are so to speak our main asset. Therefore, all professions are good. Yet, professions that give a boost to the nation's development are important,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president noted that this is exactly why Belarus embarked on the active promotion of the IT industry. Belarusian specialists are working in the field of space technology and biotechnologies. “The most advanced, science-based professions are in bigger demand. In fact, it will help us to be at the forefront, ahead of others, and not trail behind. If we fall behind, these oil, gas and gold mining giants will simply overwhelm us. We will not even be visible. Therefore, we should be running ahead so that we will not be crushed. And these professions, the most advanced ones, will be in demand,” the head of state said.
