BELYNICHI DISTRICT, 29 September (BelTA) – During his working trip to Mogilev Oblast, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko suggested declaring next year the Year of Quality, BelTA has learned.
During the head of state's visit to the agricultural town of Vishov, Belynichi District, the repair of roads was discussed. Housing and Utilities Minister Gennady Trubilo told the president that the tasks related to road repairs are being overfulfilled.
“It's good that you are overfulfilling, but keep in mind that you will be responsible for the quality. You can't botch it, because it will be costly. That is not our way. Therefore, quantity is a good thing, but quality should be above everything. We need to declare next year the Year of Quality. Everything is fine: output is good and the demand for Belarus' products is colossal (we are struggling to meet the demand in Russia). Yet, we still have problems with quality. Therefore, quality is of paramount importance,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized.
According to the head of state, he recently received a complaint about MTZ products. The president told the State Control Committee to look into this issue.
“Get ready for the Year of Quality next year. The Year of Quality in manufacturing, agriculture, in services and road infrastructure,” the head of state said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko noted that the government is trying hard to maintain good quality of roads, but people should also make their contribution.
“Poor quality of work is unacceptable. Quality is above everything,” added the Belarusian leader.
