MINSK, 26 July (BelTA) – The grain procurement targets must be met, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a conference to discuss the progress in the harvest campaign on 26 July, BelTA has learned.
"The government grain procurement targets must be achieved. And they will be. According to preliminary estimates, the grain of this year's harvest is good for high-quality bakery. Therefore, we need to procure as much grain as to meet the demand in full or even with a margin," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
We also need to lay the groundwork to achieve the strategic tasks in agriculture and to stock grain fodder for animal husbandry, taking into account the regimens to ensure a high level of productivity in milk and meat, the president noted.
