Call for Belarus to export more education, leisure services

MINSK, 11 July (BelTA) – Belarus should export more services. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement during the government conference held on 11 July to discuss Belarus’ foreign policy priorities in modern times, BelTA has learned.

“I want the top officials of the Sports and Tourism Ministry, the Industry Ministry, the Healthcare Ministry, and Belarusian embassies abroad to hear me. In addition to promoting the Made in Belarus brand it is necessary to promote education in Belarus, recreation in Belarus, doing sports in Belarus, and other ones,” said Alexander Lukashenko. “It is necessary to use capabilities of our country as much as possible to attract foreign tourists. We could do so much more in this regard.”

The president noted that there are worthy places of interest for tourists in Belarus. However, in his opinion, there are goals to reach and there are things to learn in this sphere. “It is necessary to work hard in this regard. Oblast governors and municipal government agencies should be the ones to take care of it,” stressed the head of state.

Alexander Lukashenko reminded that Belarus had been granted the right to host the European Games and the ice hockey world championship. “I’ve said it many times: sport is not only diplomacy, sport is also business with massive amounts of money in circulation. Then there is the image of the country to think about. I have no doubt that these competitions will be held in Belarus up to the highest standards and as many fans as possible will turn up for them,” he said.
