Belarus prime minister against assigning performance targets to private companies

MINSK, 28 August (BelTA) – It is inadmissible to assign performance targets to private companies. Prime Minister of Belarus Sergei Rumas made the relevant statement during the Council of Ministers session held on 28 August to discuss the next year’s draft social and economic development forecast, draft major monetary management guidelines, and the draft state budget as well as a new revision of the Tax Code, BelTA has learned.

Sergei Rumas said: “It is not a new matter, yet it is a bit out of focus, although it is very important to me. It applies to everyone present, first of all, the oblast governors. I mean the clause of the draft presidential decree, which forbids assigning performance targets to the private sector and assigning targets other than those set by the central government.”

The same provision is part of the effective presidential decree on Belarus’ social and economic development in 2018. However, the practical situation is a bit different. “Municipal government agencies fail to observe the decree’s requirements. They assign performance targets to all kinds of companies, including privately owned ones,” stated the prime minister.

The head of government also reminded that the performance of heads of town, city, and district administrations is judged by the number of jobs they create in accordance with Belarus president decree No.78. This is why the oblast governors will have to organize things together with the heads of town, city, and district administrations in compliance with the effective legislation, primarily decisions made by the head of state.

Sergei Rumas asked First Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Alexander Turchin to keep an eye on these matters considering the fact he is the head of the Entrepreneurship Development Council.
