Belarus president slams officials for lack of effort

BARAN, 13 August (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has criticized a number of high-level officials for the lack of effort to implement his earlier instructions related to industrial development of Orsha District, BelTA has learned.

The head of state inspected a number of local enterprises, including Tekhnika Svyazi in the town of Baran. The company makes part of the Geoinformation Systems enterprise and reports to the State Military Industry Committee. A task had been set for the company to build up capacities using the existing facilities and to expand the output and assortment of products that are in demand on the market.

However, in fact, many buildings and facilities stay idle or are offered for sale or are to be demolished. The head of state was told about the company’s development plans and positive trends in the company’s output and job creation. Nevertheless, Alexander Lukashenko drew attention of the industry top officials to the fact that his instructions are not implemented in full, and the statement alleging that the remaining premises are sufficient is just an explanation for the inadequate efficiency. “It is enough if nothing is done. Another thing if you set a task… After all, a task was set from the very beginning to utilize all this and to roll out products that are in demand on the market. You saw it as an easy ride: this and that will be leveled by a bulldozer, this will be sold. What kind of a plant will it be? I would not need you to do it. I see that you did not care enough to come to grips with the task that had been set,” the president said.

“Why would I need such a ministry [State Military Industry Committee] and a minister that destroys what I told him to utilize,” the Belarusian leader emphasized.

Alexander Lukashenko changed the initial inspection itinerary to see the production premises of the company with his own eyes. It turned out that many locations are not used as production premises and are simply in a mess. “This is your face that you showed. Indeed, you did not expect me to come to see your “lavatory”. You have turned every other storey of this building into a lavatory where no one has ever cleaned. We will show the whole country how you work,” the head of state said.

“You decided to find an easy way around me,” the president noted.

The enterprise in Baran was established in 1873. At present the company specializes in development and production of digital and analogue short-wave and ultra-short-wave radio communication systems, telecommunication equipment for wire line carriers and antenna posts. It also produces consumer goods and provides a number of services. The president was shown the production of combat helmets and radio communication means.
