Lukashenko urges to step up import substitution efforts

MINSK, 23 June (BelTA) – We need to make maximum efforts to replace imports, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he commented on the speeches of the delegates to the 5th Belarusian People's Congress on 23 June, BelTA has learned.

“We should produce in the country everything that we can,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed. The head of state cited China's experience as an example. The President noted that the Chinese have always sought to produce everything themselves. Today China is switching to the manufacturing of goods of the highest level.

Belarus has already taken advantage of its cooperation with China, especially in the space sector. In this regard Alexander Lukashenko mentioned the Belarusian satellite control center in Minsk Oblast. “These are the Chinese technologies,” the President stressed.

All the tasks are manageable as the case of Belaruskali shows. In a span of several years the company has switched to domestic equipment. An exception is made for the machinery the manufacturing of which in the country is seen unpractical. “We should be assiduous and remember that we can produce a lot of things, and we need to put them into production,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
