Lukashenko: It is necessary to consider interests of all parties

MINSK (BelTA) – The interests of all parties including the state, market vendors, and consumers should be taken into account while settling business disputes, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the meeting to discuss the regulation and development of some types of business activities on 17 March, BelTA has learned.

The head of state pointed out that the government should answer a number of questions in the presence of market vendors, their representatives. “Firstly, what ways of settlement of this business issue do you suggest? Secondly, will the interests of all the parties concerned, including the state, market vendors, and consumers, be taken into consideration?” Alexander Lukashenko noted.

He believes that “neither domestic market, nor jobs, or the flow of tax payments to the state budget should be affected.”

“We should listen to the market vendors and consider their ideas on how we can settle the issues they have raised. After that we will make decisions about the future of this type of business activities in our country,” Alexander Lukashenko pointed out.

At the same time he noted that people should not suffer from such disputes. “I am waiting for a comprehensive report from the government to make a decision,” the head of state said.
