Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko would like the Belarus President Administration to drastically rethink its style of work in addition to working more effectively with human resources. The President gave the relevant instructions as he received a report from Head of the Belarus President Administration Alexander Kosinets on 10 November.

“You owe a lot of work to me with regard to human resources. Top executives for some commercial entities and backbone enterprises have been absent for days and weeks,” said the head of state.

Aleksandr Lukashenko also gave instructions to drastically change the style and the system of work of the Belarus President Administration as from 1 January. “I am going to want reports from top officials of the Belarus President Administration every quarter and you will have to make sure they are delivered on time. The reports will have to produce some new ideas,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko. “You will have to produce ideas instead of letting things slide. It will be up to me to accept these ideas or not but I want down-to-earth and unbrushed ideas. These ideas should originate from specific people. The head of the administration and his deputies must not brush them up. Otherwise, civil servants will lose all creativity and freedom of action.”

The meeting focused on planning the head of state’s work, including with regard to human resources, social and economic development, national security, and international affairs. A draft plan of work for 2017 was discussed. The plan is quite saturated and takes care of the abovementioned areas as well as ideas and large-scale events that will need to be discussed at the level of the head of state in order to look into the investment policy, the development of agribusiness, radio electronics, and civil engineering. The development of sport, education, housing and utility services was also mentioned during the meeting.
