Lukashenko wants Orsha Meat Packing Plant to become one of industry leaders by 2020

ORSHA, 13 August (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko gave an instruction to make Orsha Meat Packing Plant one of the best companies of the industry by November 2020. The task was set as Alexander Lukashenko visited the enterprise on 13 August, BelTA has learned.

After inspecting the Orsha tool-making plant which he harshly criticized, Alexander Lukashenko visited a series of other local companies, including Orsha Meat Packing Plant.

The head of state was told about the company’s operations and manufacturing facilities. After touring several workshops, Alexander Lukashenko criticized the enterprise’s work and the way the facilities and the physical infrastructure were kept.

“Things should change by 7 November 2020. Resources should be allocated, a new slaughter floor should be set up and this [old buildings] should be demolished. The enterprise should be turned into a modern company that is on par with the best meat packing plants,” the president emphasized.

Alexander Lukashenko also toured Orshaagroprommash that makes part of the Bobruiskagromash Holding Company. He was briefed about the financial performance of the enterprise and its growth prospects. The company’s products were showcased to the president.

Bobruiskagromash Director General Alexander Yeremeyev asked for assistance with debt restructuring. The holding company has about Br50 million in loans. “A decree has been drafted and agreed with the ministers. The economic effect is estimated at Br10.2 million. We are not asking for extra money, just a respite,” Alexander Yeremeyev said.

The head of state instructed senior officials of the presidential administration to come to grips with this matter, submit a relevant report to the president and put forward their proposals.

“Keep in mind, God forbid, if the decree is not fulfilled and you come for the respite again, you will have only yourself to blame,” Alexander Lukashenko noted.

The president carefully studied the operation of Orshaagroprommash, asked about the company’s workload and efforts to find new sales markets. He urged to use the manufacturing facilities properly and improve the physical infrastructure of the enterprise.
