Socially-oriented economy seen as only option for Belarus

Socially-oriented economy seen as only option for Belarus

MINSK, 3 February (BelTA) – The social model of economic development is the only acceptable model of development for Belarus, President Alexander Lukashenko said at the meeting with the members of the public, representatives of the Belarusian and foreign mass media on 3 February, BelTA has learned.

“I believe that the socially-oriented economy is the right development model for us and for all the Slavonic peoples in general. I do not see any other model of development for Belarus. I have been watching closely the options of development made in Russia, Ukraine, and some other countries. I pray that God save us from such fate,” Alexander Lukashenko noted.

The head of state stressed that any state is worth something if it serves its people. “Why do people need the state which does not give anything to them? The socially-oriented economy is the economy for people,” the President said.

According to Alexander Lukashenko, the Belarusian economy is currently going through difficult times, but the state continues supporting its people. “I proceed from the concept I formulated during the presidential election. I will help people. I will stay committed to the socially-oriented economy principles. I cannot promise one thing and do the other. This is not my policy. I advocate a sincere and fair policy. One cannot envisage everything in a law. When it is not legislated, do it in the right fair way. I think fairness is more important than any law,” the President stressed.
