Belarus president backs proposal to more actively involve private sector in lawmaking

MINSK, 27 March (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has backed the proposal to more actively involve representatives of the private sector in the development of regulatory acts within the framework of the public advisory boards operating under ministries, BelTA learned from Alexander Turchin, Chairman of the Business Promotion Council, Head of the Office of Belarus’ Council of Ministers.

The Belarusian head of state was informed about results and prospects of the Business Promotion Council’s work. “The council is now working on systemic matters. A number of proposals were put forward today and approved by the head of state,” said Alexander Turchin.

In his words, the most important proposal is to more actively involve representatives of the private sector in the work of the public advisory boards operating under the aegis of various ministries in the development of legislation.

“The head of state backed the proposal that representatives of the private sector should be part of the boards in the course of development of regulatory acts. They should be a considerable part. In order to discuss draft legislation before it comes into force. Not after like it sometimes happens in Belarus,” said the chairman of the Business Promotion Council. “The latest problems with private bus companies is the case in point. We didn’t need unnecessary tensions in the society and extraneous debates. The council looked into the matter last Thursday. I would like to say that private companies offer regular transportation services and irregular ones. We cannot say that the private sector and the state are at odds. At present it was an attempt to make everyone operate in equal conditions.”

The establishment of business promotion councils in the oblasts and districts of Belarus was also mentioned. “First of all, we need these dialogue platforms to discuss the problems that private companies may run into and municipal government agencies can resolve,” explained Alexander Turchin.
