MOGILEV, 15 February (BelTA) – Belarus has a confident policy and clear prospects, BelTA learned from Chairman of the Bobruisk City Executive Committee Aleksandr Studnev. The official participated in the 6th Belarusian People's Congress.
The delegate said: “One can say with confidence that we have our own unique vector for moving forward. We systematically build plans for medium-term and long-term future. The decision to accelerate the development of 11 regional centers of the country was a timely one. The measures resulted in an increase in social and economic performance indicators, the industrial potential, the growth of infrastructure in towns and districts. Each uses its competitive advantages to make it happen. Small and medium private companies participate in the implementation of projects of social importance.”
In his words, despite the complicated epidemiological period the Belarusian state has managed to retain social stability. “The construction of important social facilities continues. The physical infrastructure of medical institutions has been renewed considerably. By mobilizing resources for diagnostics and treatment we acted effectively in the period of the intense epidemic situation. But most importantly we've managed to preserve worker collectives and the current level of social protection of the population,” the official noted.
Aleksandr Studnev stressed that Belarus had decently finished the previous five-year term and has confidently approached the new one. “The clear-cut policy of the country's leadership to preserve manufacturing enterprises and results of work of every worker and clerk helped our enterprises survive and secure confident prospects for the future,” the official noted.
The development of the regions is one of the most important aspects of the country's development. “It is important that these positions of balanced regional development are reflected in the draft program on social and economic development in the new five-year term. The stimulation of business activity must become the most important goal in the medium term. It is necessary to improve entrepreneurship support mechanisms to secure this goal. Particularly with regard to the introduction of business ideas and youth startups, including with the allocation of grants. By doing it, we will offer opportunities for self-realization and will keep promising young people in the regions. We will create prerequisites for an increase in business initiative,” Aleksandr Studnev stressed.
“Taking into account the fact that many factors affect the development of the regions, we fully endorse the new program's approaches to stepping up the authority of municipal government agencies to support the establishment of new enterprises. Depending on the potential of specific territories, pinpoint measures will allow effectively tackling economic risks by exploiting regional interests and regional peculiarities. New industrial sites with the relevant infrastructure should become a growth driver,” he noted. “It is no accident that the new five-year term begins with the Year of People's Unity. Our unity will secure success in progressive advance. Bobruisk residents and residents of other regions know and feel their responsibility for the development of the country and for how the future generations of Belarusians will live. With this thought and with this idea we will work to the best of our ability for the benefit of our state.”
