MINSK, 10 July (BelTA) – Salaries at private companies need to be correlated with the average salary at the top ten enterprises, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he visited ZAO Atlant on 10 July, BelTA has learned.
“I ask to take this issue under control. The government must implement this instruction. I was thinking about salaries, how we were going to proceed. I suggest we take the country's ten major enterprises such as Atlant, MAZ, BelAZ which pay the highest salaries. On top is the company paying the highest and at the bottom – the one with the lowest salaries. Then we calculate the average salary of these ten and communicate this information to privately-held companies,” the head of state noted.
“Private enterprises cannot pay salaries lower than the top 10 enterprises. In this way, we will also control the salaries of those who consider themselves to be ‘free from everything'," the president stressed.
ZAO Atlant development strategy by 2025 has been coordinated this year. The company will be focused, first of all, on maintaining and strengthening its positions in the traditional segments such as refrigerators and washing machines. The company is set to ensure a significant growth in export and salaries by means of increasing labor productivity. “We look set to reach the revenue per worker of Br100,000 by the end of 2020,” ZAO Atlant director Dmitry Sokolovsky said.
