Belarus - Prime Minister of Belarus: all Belarus' regions should fulfill socio-economic targets for 2006-2010

All the oblasts of Belarus, as well as ministries and government bodies should fulfill the social and economic targets set for 2006-2010, Prime Minister of Belarus Sergei Sidorsky said at a session of the Presidium of the Council of Ministers on 22 December.

"The approach is the same: the oblasts, ministries and government bodies should accomplish the social and economic targets set for 2006-2010. I do not accept any requests to revise the targets," Sergei Sidorsky said.

He reminded that Decree No. 595 approved the most important targets of the social and economic development of the country in 2010. The Government and local authorities were commissioned with a task to increase GDP by 11-13% next year. "To achieve this, the Government and oblast executive committees, enterprises, all economic entities should take appropriate measures. Our major challenge is to balance the work of the key economic branches and work out the approaches we will employ beginning January 1, 2010. As the tasks are quite challenging, the intensive work should be started in January," the Belarusian Premier said.

The Prime Minister noted that the Government has instructed the ministries and agencies to develop action plans to fulfill the targets. The Economy Ministry is expected to submit the draft resolution on achieving the targets to the Government. A document ensuring the balance of the monetary policy will be prepared as well. The Government plans to hold a session next week to approve necessary documents.
