MINSK, 14 June (BelTA) – There is no time for waste, Belarus’ newly appointed Information Minister Marat Markov told reporters speaking about the tasks facing the Information Ministry, BelTA has learned.

“The Information Ministry put together a great team of professionals under the previous minister Vladimir Pertsov who is now Deputy Head of the Belarus President Administration. We will rely on them and join our efforts to make our work truly efficient. There is no other way. We don’t have time to kick the can down the road. The presidential election cycle has begun. Therefore, I am sure that together we will resolve all the issues and fulfill all the tasks facing us,” said Marat Markov.

According to him, state-run mass media have become hardened over time. “We have become much more assertive and we definitely prevail in the media landscape. And the minister naturally has a responsibility to help mass media to become even more powerful and professional using resources of the Information Ministry. The president defined it as a priority. We will address this task. First of all, we will support the national mass media outlets, without neglecting regional ones. We have the wherewithal to do it,” the minister noted.

Top on the agenda is personnel training. “There is one problem that requires continuous attention, and the ministry will deal with this problem together with the Faculty of Journalism, and other universities of the republic. We need to train highly professional personnel in order to be able to do more, to launch new cool projects. For this, we need young and talented people who will be passionate about their work and who will clearly understand what is required of them from an ideological point of view,” added Marat Markov.
