Belarus’ social policy prioritizes housing improvement

MINSK, 3 October (BelTA) – Housing improvement will always be one of Belarus’ social policy priorities, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the session to discuss a new wording of the Housing Code and the improvement of legislation concerning the number of abandoned and shabby houses on 3 October, BelTA has learned.

Housing is more than just a roof over the head. It is a place where people coming from work can relax, stay with their families in a comfortable atmosphere. Bring up children is the main thing,” the Belarusian leader said.

He asked the participants of the session about the necessity of proposed amendments. “First, why do we need it? Is this the right time? Does anything impede the operation of old legal acts regulating these relations? Do we need to amend the Housing Code today and prepare a new wording? These are the main questions for us,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
