SOLIGORSK, 22 September (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko met with Director General of Belaruskali Ivan Golovaty in Soligorsk. The situation at the enterprise was discussed, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “Reporters say that the country has not seen you for a long time. I'd like you to inform me about the situation at the enterprise. Just the two of us. Sincerely. Without fear. Although you don't scare easily. But nevertheless.”
First of all the head of state wondered what problems Belaruskali is encountering now and how the work to master port facilities in Russia was proceeding. “How are we doing there? What else do we need to do?” the president wondered. “And the key question: how do you feel considering the terrible sanctions-fueled pressure on the enterprise?”
Ivan Golovaty told Aleksandr Lukashenko that the enterprise is now operating at 80% of its capacity. In his words, the figure is much higher than the one registered at the beginning of the year. “Your instruction to make and export at least 8 million tonnes will be fulfilled. We already project it will be done based on the results of January-September,” the Belaruskali CEO stated.
