Lukashenko plans to visit south-eastern districts of Mogilev Oblast in 2019

Lukashenko plans to visit south-eastern districts of Mogilev Oblast in 2019

MINSK, 29 July (BelTA) – This year I plan to visit the south-eastern districts of Mogilev Oblast, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he approved the appointment of heads of local executive and regulatory bodies on 29 July, BelTA has learned.

“I plan to visit the south-east of the country in the near future. I saw it from the helicopter, but we need to sit and look carefully into the program [on the development of the south-eastern districts of Mogilev Oblast]. Plans are in place to meet with the local authorities and discuss everything,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko. The president was interested in the progress made in the implementation of his decree on the social and economic development of the region and the corresponding regional program through 2020. The president was briefed that a number of new agricultural, food and woodworking companies had been set up in Slavgorod.

The head of state also asked about the situation in other regions of the country, agricultural companies and weak farms there. “How are things with Ovsyanka? This was one of the best farms in Belarus once, never mind Gorki District. Gorki District is the leading region in the country. It needs to be supported. It was refurbished before it hosted Dazhynki,” the president said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko also spoke about Krugloye District: “This is a very good region. A lot needs to be done there. I visit the region some 20 times a year. It is not big and the right areas of work were chosen there from the very beginning. The region just needs some support.”

The president noted that regional economy is mainly based on agriculture. That is why, this sector requires close attention. The head of state revisited the matters during the recent nationwide teleconference on Belarus’ harvest 2019 and his working trip to Vetka District.

“I read some criticism in the internet of my recent statement that we need to harvest 9.5 million tonnes of grain,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. According to him, there are the corresponding plans. “The head of the administration keeps the matter under control. We will also look closely after the government and, of course, you,” the president said.

He explained that this year Belarusian agrarians are expected to harvest about 700,000 coleseed, some 7 million tonnes of grain and 1.7 million tonnes of grain maize, and also 300,000-400,000 tonnes of other crops. This will make up some 9.7 million tonnes. “There is nothing extraordinary here,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The head of state also repeated his instruction to take the problem of livestock loss under strict control. He added that some 85,000 head was lost last year, which is about 40,000 tonnes of beef. “We have lost a lot of money. That is why I am making such instructions. With all today's advanced technologies, such things are simply inadmissible,” the president said.

On 29 July, Aleksandr Lukashenko approved the appointment of the authorities in the Globukoye, Shumilino, Zhitkovichi, Korma, Volozhin, Lyuban, Kopyl, Gorki, Kirovsk, Krugloye, Osipovichi, and Slavgorod district executive committees and also the administration of the Pervomaisky district of Bobruisk.
