Lukashenko wants Belarusians to prosper

MINSK, 6 September (BelTA) – Alexander Lukashenko would like his fellow Belarusians to never feel the lack of means to acquire something. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the relevant statement in an interview with the news agency TASS. The interview is intended for a television film timed to the 25th anniversary of the Commonwealth of Independent States and for the TV program Formula of Power, BelTA has learned.

“You know I would like people to never think they lack means to acquire something when they look into their wallets or their pockets,” said Alexander Lukashenko. “Part of the nation always lacks something. It is only natural. But I would like people in Belarus to never suffer from it. It is my only dream.”

Yet the President stressed that people should take care of their own future themselves, too. “Then one will be able to prosper. Here is a concrete example. Several years ago I signed a decree on developing agricultural and ecological tourism. Since then about 3,000 enterprising families have created their own enterprises, so to say. They have built villages and homes where from ten to fifty or one hundred people can spend their vacations. These enterprising people live well. Can any Belarusian earn enough for themselves and their families if they set their minds to it? They can. It is my dream. Let me emphasize once again: I would like Belarusians to never suffer from the lack of money to acquire something when they look into their wallets and pockets. I will accomplish it,” noted the head of state.
