Belarus does not need investments for investments, he said
Belarus does not need foreign investment for investment, said Tuesday the President of the Republic Alexander Lukashenko.
During a meeting in Grodno, referring to foreign investment, the Belarusian leader noted that investments for investments Belarus is no longer needed. "If 10-15 years ago, we talked about investments for the investment to just have jobs, we are investing today not needed. We're not here to build businesses just to employ people. Yes, we need jobs, but the sharpness is not" - said Lukashenko.
He explained that "investment, construction of industrial facilities need people who will make a profit." "Therefore, investments investments differ," - said the Belarusian leader.
Lukashenko has noticed that for years of independence the country has implemented many investment projects, in particular, China has granted credit lines worth billions of dollars, but they are not fully selected. "I will never agree to someone to give money, and he thinks to build. We need to build what you need. The most important thing is to make a profit and be sold in international markets", - said the head of state.
He also said that forming a new five-year plan, you need to "take a good example from the Soviet era". "You remember it clearly it was painted the objects that will be put into operation. And concrete were allocated funds under these facilities. A good investment is the wealth of the people and the region. It is necessary to define the main objects that we'll build in the future five years," the President said, referring to the asset of the Grodno region.
