Lukashenko urges efficient use of budget funds

MINSK, 22 December (BelTA) – The budget funds should be used in the most efficient way, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with representatives of the business community on 22 December, BelTA informs.

“When you start to make reproaches to the authorities, not just me, though, you know, in a dishonest way without citing the facts, I do not take it well. Everything should be fair. Everything must be done with honesty and integrity. Maybe sometimes we make mistakes. I give you my word I have never pocked a dime and I will not let the budget siphoned off,” the president noted.

Alexander Lukashenko said that business representatives usually try to get something cheaper or get wider access to budgetary resources. “I see, however, that it is the state-owned enterprises rather than private firm who have applied for budget support more often recently ,” the president said.

“We will deal with these matters quickly. Instead of searching for market niches and selling products, they demand financial assistance and bailouts. This should not be like this. You know what our budget is for. We have teachers and doctors who are far from being rich,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
