MINSK, 18 November (BelTA) – It is still necessary to equalize incomes in the countryside and incomes in urban areas, the task remains on the watch list. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during a solemn assembly held to honor top agribusiness performers, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed that without intensive and meticulous work, without innovations and mutual assistance it is impossible to achieve high results. Prosperity can be achieved only through creative labor, he noted. “You and I have accomplished a lot. By straining the nation's strength, through manufacturing cooperation with close and friendly countries. A lot has yet to be accomplished,” the Belarusian leader said.

“The task of income leveling in the countryside and in urban areas remains topical. It remains on the watch list. Requirements for those, who are responsible for accomplishing this task, will be raised. But money needs to be earned. The components are well-known: investments, technologies, discipline,” the president stated.

Aleksandr Lukashenko assured the government will continue providing support to agricultural enterprises with modernizing their manufacturing capabilities. Primarily with the construction of farms, acquisition of expensive machines, tools, and vehicles, with land amelioration.
