Lukashenko: Government system makes sense only when it serves people

Lukashenko: Government system makes sense only when it serves people

MINSK, 9 March (BelTA) – A government system makes sense only when it serves people, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with senior officials of the Council of Ministers, BelTA has learned.

“The entire economic system of the country should be aimed at accommodating people’s interests. I want to stress that there is no populism in it, as some, having got emotional, may claim in Telegram channels, citing the elections as the reason. I want to reiterate what I have been saying since my first day in office: the whole system and the government in general make sense only when they are for the good of people. Everything else is meaningless,” the president said.

During the meeting, several documents were submitted to the head of state, including draft decrees on additional stimulation of local authorities, on the proposals to improve the bankruptcy procedure and protection of workers' rights, on state surveillance of technical status of tractors and other equipment, on the container deposit system, and on the promotion of electric vehicles. The agenda of the meeting also includes the improvement of notary services, amendments to the standards of duty-free import of goods by individuals.
