MINSK, 5 March (BelTA) – OAO Motovelo should become an advanced, exemplary enterprise by the end of the five-year term, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said during the visit to the enterprise on 5 March, BelTA informs.
The head of state was submitted a plan of action to solve Motovelo's problems related to the accumulated debt. The president generally approved it and instructed to prepare a draft decree. He urged to act swiftly and start renovations without wasting time, as soon as good weather sets in.
"Please, make proposals without delay," Aleksandr Lukashenko said. "If we want something done, we need to get moving today."
"We expect that during this five-year period Motovelo will turn into an exemplary enterprise and will remain a household name for Belarusians as it once was. We need to do everything to turn it around,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. The product line, he said, should be expanded, including with electric vehicles as it is the most environmentally friendly mode of transport. The president also urged to increase localization, to start manufacturing of parts and components. "The number one issue for you is to restore the production, to double and localize it," the head of state said as he addressed Director of OAO Motovelo Nikolai Ladutko. "Assembly production is a good thing. You get parts supplied from China, Russia or Europe and assemble them here. Yet, we need to produce things by ourselves."
"We need a well-performing manufacture of motor vehicles. Motovelo should become an exemplary enterprise by the end of the five-year period," the president said.
