Lukashenko wants all 2015 forecast targets met

MINSK, 6 August (BelTA) – It is essential to hit all 2015 forecast targets, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko gave this instruction to the government as he met with Belarus Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov to receive his report on 6 August, BelTA has learned.

“I urge the government to fulfill all forecast targets this year,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.

“I understand that there are difficulties. But imagine that there is war in the economy or an emergency situation. We must do our best to hit all the targets this year in these warlike economic conditions,” the President said.

The head of state inquired what the government is doing to solve the issue.

“We must solve these practical issues. People do not want us to do something extraordinary! They understand that external factors created 80% of this situation. It is not our fault,” Alexander Lukashenko remarked.

“But we will have to strain every sinew to find the way out. We must do it. We cannot wait for improvements in the neighboring countries, traditional markets. You are aware of the trends. Therefore, we will have to be aggressive, compete with others and penetrate new markets. This is a task for everyone,” the President emphasized.

Alexander Lukashenko said that it is planned to discuss strategic issues regarding the development of the country in 2016-2020.

“I do not want to reproach the current government. But they have stated this practice: when they are struggling with something and fail to achieve the results they report to the President or the society of some future ambitious projects, some long-term prospects. When I look into these things which are of conceptual importance for our country I always think who will fulfill these plans,” the head of state noted.

“Second, people should not only think about tomorrow, of course, it is very important, but people live today. We must do out utmost to ensure normal living standards,” the President stressed. He said that this is not pre-election rhetoric. “Frankly speaking, I do need such rhetoric. This is not my goal,” the head of state said.
