Lukashenko: Belarusian agriculture needs iron-willed executives and iron order

KAMENETS DISTRICT, 28 August (BelTA) – Belarusian agriculture needs iron-willed executives and iron order. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement as he visited the Ryasna division of the large agricultural company OAO Belovezhsky on 28 August, BelTA has learned.

The head of state underlined that maintaining discipline in agriculture is a number one priority at present. Alexander Lukashenko noted that the government pays close attention to this economic branch and provides support, including financial support, by supplying agricultural enterprises with modern high-performance machines among other things. According to the President, Belarusian agriculture needs iron-willed executives and iron order for the sake of preserving the accomplishments.

According to the head of state, agricultural enterprises should pay close attention to these matters today. Strict observance of technological standards is important as well. “If you don’t follow standards, you commit a crime,” stressed Alexander Lukashenko. “Those, who bury seeds in the soil and just wait for the harvest, are criminals. Such crimes cannot be permitted.”

The head of state also mentioned these matters while talking to OAO Belovezhsky workers and residents of the village of Ryasno. “Things will slide without discipline. If there is discipline and order, including the observance of standards, we will grow,” said the President.

Alexander Lukashenko said he believes it is necessary to think about ways to reward and encourage the executives and specialists who revive backward enterprises.

“If a good executive and a couple of competent specialists are available, then the enterprise will be revived. Without them nothing will work regardless of machines, investments or salaries, the enterprise will not exist,” continued the President.

In his words, building up on things that exist now is the optimal way. “There is no need to break anything. We don’t have money to waste on breaking things and making errors,” stressed the President. “This is why we are going to act on the basis of what we have.”
