Belarus will solve current economic difficulties, Lukashenko promises

MINSK, 29 January (BelTA) - Belarus will successfully deal with the current economic difficulties, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the meeting with journalists on 29 January, BelTA has learned.

The President noted that some media suggest the so-called structural reforms. "I understand what they suggest. They suggest giving away enterprises and closing down the poorly-performing ones. It is easy to close down. But we always have to think about the consequences,” he said.

The independent Belarus adopted the best things from its past for economic development. "I said it during the first presidential election: we would take only the best things with us. And we did. Our enterprises started working. They have worked well. And they will continue working. I guarantee this to you: they will continue working. We will break out of this difficult situation which our economy is now,” Alexander Lukashenko underlined.

In this connection, the President recalled the important task that was relevant in the first years of his presidency and is still relevant. This is the diversification of exports, including food exports. Alexander Lukashenko noted that Belarus-made goods are in demand not only in Russia but also in other countries. "We can build up exports. Today, our products are in great demand in Venezuela, China and other countries. We manufacture a lot of farm products which we can sell,” said the Belarusian President.
