MINSK, 12 February (BelTA) – The book Financial Diet: Public Finance Reform in Belarus gives an alternative vision of the situation covered by foreign mass media. The statement was made by UNDP Resident Representative in Belarus Sanaka Samarasinha after the book's presentation during the 23rd Minsk International Book Fair, BelTA has learned.

“It is very important to publish this book in English. It will be popular and will present an alternative vision to the one currently available from foreign mass media,” believes Sanaka Samarasinha.

In his words, publishing the book in English will be beneficial for the USA, European and Asian countries. “It will be useful for everyone because it debates very important principles and approaches. It would be a pity if people, who don't speak Russian, were unable to read this book,” noted the UNDP Resident Representative.

Sanaka Samarasinha also mentioned he would love to read the book once it is published in English.

Asked when the book will be available in English, he noted that the translated version is supposed to be ready by the arrival of UNDP Administrator Helen Clark in Belarus on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster.

The book Financial Diet: Public Finance Reform in Belarus has been written by a team of 20 economics experts from the Belarusian State Economic University, the Economics Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, the Belarusian research center BEROC, the Belarusian Economic Research and Outreach Center (BEROC), the IPM Research Center, Arizona State University, Britain's National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and the German Economic Team Belarus. Aide to the Belarus President Kirill Rudy is the science editor of the book.
