Lukashenko: Only responsible investors will work in Belarus

MINSK, 1 July (BelTA) – Only responsible investors will work in Belarus. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement at the solemn meeting dedicated to Belarus Independence Day on 1 July, BelTA has learned.

“I recall how individual citizens decried some convictions. They’ve been recently saying that it was Lukashenko that put those people into prison. It will be the fate of everyone, who comes to our land in order to line their pockets and destroy labor collectives,” said the Belarus President.

“I tell the same thing to any investors, western, domestic, or eastern ones: treat our country and our nation like you treat you family. Don’t be a cheapskate, don’t fatten your wallets. Give something first to the people you have promised happiness to. If you don’t do it, you will not work here and we don’t need such investments in our economy. We can handle our economy on our own,” stressed the head of state. He added: “If you come here, you have to work.”
