Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko is in favor of a balanced reformation of the Tax Code. The head of state made the statement at the meeting with Alexander Turchin, Chairman of the Business Promotion Council, Head of the Council of Ministers’ Apparatus, on 27 March.

“There should not be any burdens in our system. It is also important for the state. Secondly, and it is absolutely right, they sometimes say that we need the convenient and understandable Tax Code. It is inadmissible to ruin the balance with reforms. Our tax system should not be turned into an excessive burden for business. On the other hand, it is even more dangerous to weaken the state, to affect such major aspects as taxes and money,” the President said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko also asked about the processes going on in business and the operation of the renewed council. “In this regard, I would like to know when we will hold a session of this council at the level of the President. When you will be ready to hold the session in a way different from the previous meeting where the participants talked about problems at their enterprises and sometimes asked for something. I would like to know the state of affairs in general and what the business environment needs,” the head of state said.
