MINSK, 26 April (BelTA) – Members of the lower chamber of the Belarusian parliament will pass 12 bills designed to support the economy in conditions of sanctions-fueled pressure, BelTA learned from Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko.
Vladimir Andreichenko said: “We have 12 bills, which need to be passed right away within the framework of realization of the comprehensive plan on developing the economy in conditions of sanctions-fueled pressure. This plan has been recently adopted by the government of the Republic of Belarus.”
The speaker of the parliament added that 40 bills are under consideration in permanent commissions. The commissions should accelerate work on all the bills slated for this session, including taking into account provisions of the updated Constitution.
“Apart from these 40 [bills] you know that an ordinance on implementing 28 Union State programs has been signed. They focus on harmonization and unification of legislation. Our ministries and government agencies are working on it. Some of them are already prepared to amend the national legislation of Russia and Belarus. We've already passed some bills relating to customs affairs. Some have yet to be passed. On the whole, according to various calculations, we will have to read from 300 to 400 bills. This is the kind of huge work we will have to do,” the MP noted.
