Working trip to Rogachev District, Gomel Oblast
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko made a working trip to Rogachev District, Gomel Oblast, on 13 August.
The head of state asked about the state of affairs in the agricultural industry in Rogachev District, the progress in the development of agricultural organizations in general and of OAO Tikhinichi in particular.
The merger of OAO Tikhinichi and another large enterprise is currently under consideration. Plans have been made to build a new dairy farm, to increase the milking herd. According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, this should be a well-considered step, and the enterprise should not be overloaded. Senior executives of OAO Tikhnichi are also in favor of this merger. In their opinion, it will give a boost to the development of the enterprise. “If the director is in favor of it, we must support their idea,” the President said.
The head of state also mentioned the social aspect. Many villages are in the zone of work of such big enterprises. “Therefore, I do not ruin agricultural enterprises and cooperatives,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
He explained that some farmers want to take a land plot without additional social responsibilities. “We support agriculture [agricultural enterprises] because they take care of villages,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. First of all, this pertains to the maintenance of order, beautification, support of farmers.
