MINSK, 3 February (BelTA) – Suggestions have been made in Belarus to review the system of small business inspections and reduce the number of supervisory activities, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the meeting with the members of the public, representatives of the Belarusian and foreign mass media on 3 February, BelTA has learned.
“Most likely we will make a decision similar to the one regarding the preferences: we will abolish the inspections by the emergency ministry, police, hygienic service and others and leave only those that are necessary, without which we cannot do,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
For example, a new company will be inspected by the hygienic service and the Emergencies Ministry who issue work permits. If an accident happens at this company in the future, the responsibility will be borne by the head of the company. “We will toughen the laws with respect to responsibility of managers. Then neither the Emergencies Ministry nor hygienic service will be running around. It will be the head of the company who will be making every effort to make sure that everything goes well. This is the way it should be,” the head of state said.
“The government is working on this already. I think that we will submit these innovations for public debate,” Alexander Lukashenko added.More about President
