Lukashenko: Belarus will certainly achieve higher living standards

MINSK, 1 July (BelTA) – Belarus will certainly achieve a higher level of economic development and better quality of life, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said on 1 July at a solemn ceremony to mark Belarus Independence Day, BelTA has learned.

“I am confident that the people of Belarus will successfully overcome the current temporary difficulties. We will certainly achieve a higher level of economic development and better quality of life, because we possess invaluable wealth – the glorious history of courage and endurance, the unity of the nation, the sense of dignity, and an immense will to make or country strong and prosperous,” Alexander Lukashenko emphasized.

The Belarusian leader pointed out that the main asset of the young Belarusian state is the unity of its citizens and their creative labor.

The head of state recalled that the 5th Belarusian People’s Congress adopted a program for further development of the country. Alexander Lukashenko stressed that its implementation will require decisive steps, including legislative ones. “We pin big hopes on the new parliament that will be elected in autumn. I have no doubt that Belarusians will once again demonstrate active citizenship and high consciousness, as the MPs will make decisions important for the country,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

The Belarusian leader added that in the coming years, the country will need to focus the efforts on such priority areas as attracting investment for innovative development, ensuring employment, boosting and diversifying exports, promoting the expansion of information technologies, and creating conditions for harmonious upbringing and education of young people.

“It is symbolic that we launch this great effort in the Year of Culture. The notion of culture comprises not only folklore, theaters, art schools, literature, cinema and festivals. It also includes technology-intensive production, wise land use, and respect for nature, law, and traditions. Finally, it is the spiritual core that has helped our people withstand the most challenging ordeals,” Alexander Lukashenko stressed.
