MINSK, 17 June (BelTA) – Belarus should maintain its ranking among the top 25 countries in the world Olympic arena. This ambitious goal is envisaged in Belarus’ draft social and development program for 2016-2020, which is to be discussed at the 5th Belarusian People’s Congress, BelTA has learned.

The main goal is to maintain Belarus’ rating among Olympic nations, not lower than the 25th spot. As for the development of physical education and sport, there are plans to increase the share of people taking up sport to at least 25% of the total population in 2020.
