Lukashenko: MAZ needs a new face

MINSK, 7 April (BelTA) – MAZ (the trademark of OAO Minsk Automobile Plant) as well as other famous Belarusian brands should be preserved. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement while talking to some of Minsk Automobile Plant employees on 7 April, BelTA has learned.

“First of all, you have to keep the enterprise. It needs to be renewed as much as possible. It needs a new face. These conveyors should produce top-notch Belarusian vehicles,” stated the Belarusian leader.

Alexander Lukashenko underlined that it is primarily up to the entire MAZ team to ensure the high quality of the products. He remarked that the company’s dealerships sometimes file justified complaints in this regard. “If any one of you fails to pay due attention to quality, we will not survive competition,” said the President. “We have to preserve the enterprise and raise quality standards.”

The head of state noted that in current economic conditions the enterprise has encountered a number of difficulties. At the same time he gave instructions to prevent the situation from becoming worse whatever it may cost.

MAZ, BelAZ, and MMVZ make up the face of our country. We have no right and cannot let these companies go out of business. This is why I would like to tell sceptics and those, who don’t believe it today, that MAZ will always keep working, including in my time and the time after me,” said the head of state.

The President stressed that keeping these and other enterprises working is a matter of honor for him. Apart from that, if these enterprises keep working, the economic base and jobs for future generations are preserved. “Our happiness is here, in this land. We should think about ways to preserve jobs for our children,” concluded Alexander Lukashenko.
