PUKHOVICHI DISTRICT, 4 November (BelTA) – Large families will be provided with housing in Belarus within two years at most. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko mentioned it as the Belarusian National Biotechnology Corporation (BNBC) officially launched the production of compound feed and amino acids in Pukhovichi District, Minsk Oblast, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “We are now working out social programs, particularly those concerning housing. Large families are prioritized. Three [kids] are a priority. We will definitely provide large families with housing within one year, within two years at most. Because it is more important than the BNBC. It is demographic security. It is the independence of our country. If we have children.”
The president admitted that Belarus' population is decreasing little by little. “We have to recover and ensure population growth. This is why we are going to review all the benefits soon. We will transfer them to large families and the military wherever possible. And the rented housing that your company is building. We will support it in order to provide the working class with housing,” he said.
One of the questions the head of state was asked touched upon the development of social infrastructure, the construction of missing facilities in the population centers where BNBC workers live. “We will do all the necessary things at the appropriate time,” the Belarusian leader assured.
Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that kids can be transported to a kindergarten or a school in a centralized manner as an option. “This is why I've said we are keeping an eye on it. Certainly, we are going to build schools and kindergartens for you because the population will grow here. But at the appropriate time,” he said.
