Belarus economy shows positive dynamics

MINSK, 1 July (BelTA) – The Belarusian economy is starting to show positive dynamics. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the solemn assembly held on 1 July on the occasion of Belarus’ Independence Day, BelTA has learned.

The head of state remarked that life has its share of ups and downs and the last two years was a particularly difficult period. “Many people felt it. Yet Belarusians demonstrated restraint and did not follow empty slogans and appeals. Every Belarusian did his or her job instead. Together we’ve managed to turn the situation around!” stated Alexander Lukashenko. “It was possible only because we are an absolutely earthly nation. Nobody can achieve anything without honest hard labor. Only those, who work hard, can stay on top of this life on this planet. There is no other choice! Only labor, knowledge, education.”

“Results of the last few months demonstrate that the national economy is slowly starting to show the positive dynamics that we need,” noted the head of state.

“But people represent the key value. This is why the government policy is harnessed by the principle: everything for the benefit of people. It is the guideline for all the government agencies because our country is truly a people’s republic!” stressed the Belarusian leader.

“Today we focus on the economy of knowledge, which role has increased massively in the modern world. Creating an IT country is our ambitious yet achievable goal. By accomplishing it, we will make Belarus even more modern and prosperous, we will allow Belarusians to confidently look into the future,” stated the Belarusian leader.

The president pointed out that it is not just another ambitious goal, but a goal the country’s survival hinges upon. He reminded that the day before the president of Russia said that if Russians and Belarusians fail to accomplish this goal, then there is no fate for them. “I absolutely agree with him. You can see in what direction the world is developing,” noted the head of state. Advanced technology is everything, he added.
