Lukashenko urges to respect people when handling issues

MINSK 17 March (BelTA) – When solving issues of market vendors we need to take the moral factor into account, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the session held on 17 March to discuss the regulation and development of certain types of business activity, BelTA has learned.

“The main thing is the human factor. People should not suffer. It is essential to handle these issues carefully without doing harm to people. All of them have families. The moral factor should be the main priority,” the head of state stressed.

The head of state also expressed confidence that market vendors should be involved in normal transparent business which guarantees equal conditions for all participants. The main thing is that they should work in conjunction with the Belarusian light industry and sell Belarusian-made goods.

“As far as business is concerned, competition in equal conditions regardless of the forms of ownership is the main priority,” the head of state believes. Today the situation is as follows: part of market vendors work in transparent conditions, the other part does not accept new business terms envisaged in the legislation.

The President also warned market vendors against politicizing their interests.
