Lukashenko reveals how he builds his itinerary for regional trips

SMOLEVICHI DISTRICT, 16 August (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told reporters how he chooses where to go on regional trips as he inspected the selection and seed complex of the Scientific and Practical Center for Arable Farming of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB), BelTA has learned.

“We have already got a barrage of requests from people asking why the president is not coming to their community and so on. After all, there are thousands, thousands of such communities that we are asked to visit for various reasons. Some people want us to come because our visits help fix some issues. Some want to see the president, others want the president to see something. I should say that I will not be able to visit all these places as there are several thousands of them. Probably, it will not be right if I hopscotch from one place to another randomly. I choose to visit those places where I can see something new,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president recalled his recent visit to Myadel District. Over there abandoned lands were reclaimed to agriculture and a solid agricultural company was created from scratch. The head of state plans to visit one of agricultural companies near Grodno: “The governor wants to amaze us with something. Let's see what he has in store for us.”

“In other words, if there is something new, we need to highlight it. And not just to show it to me, but to introduce it throughout the country,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized. “If you have got something that we have not seen before, we will come to check this out and we will build on this experience,” the president added.

In Smolevichi District the head of state studied the work of the Scientific and Practical Center for Arable Farming of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. The center specializes in the selection of crops and production of original seeds. “There is nothing like this anywhere else. Any state in the world can envy this. Therefore, if you have something new, we will be there tomorrow to scale it up throughout the whole country,” the head of state said.
