A PROMISING NOVELTY
Mogilev Kirov automobile Plant (branch of Belaz) has started producing the tow concrete mixer Moaz-8403.
The unit has been developed on the order of the Agriculture and Food Committee of the Mogilev Oblast Executive Committee. The concrete mixer can be towed to a construction site by any Belarus tractor. Its cement production capacity is 3 cubic meters.
The new unit is compatible with any MOAZ machines, which guarantees a good service. According to specialists, the novelty has good export prospects since similar units are not produced either in Belarus or in the neighboring countries.
The concrete mixer MOAZ-8403 has successfully passed the in-house tests. It will soon be delivered the Dobrovolets agricultural company, Klichev District, for industrial tests and certification. This year, 50 concrete mixers will be produced for local farms. munication services, transport, commerce, tourism, municipal services, hospitality business are the key areas for fostering private initiative. In the areas where it is advisable for the private sector to collaborate with the public sector, such as logistics and road services, the government will ensure development of the necessary infrastructure, including transport parking areas, recreation areas, and drive ways.
The export of services should triple in the next five years. For this purpose together with the traditional exports it is necessary to boost exports of science intensive and engineering services, including microelectronic design and programming.
Social Policy: Efficiency and Targeted Approach
Traditionally more than half of the Belarusian budget goes to social projects and programs. Powerful social guarantees will be preserved in the future and the targeted approach will be enhanced. With a view to protecting low-income families and pensioners social security mechanisms will be simplified.
An important goal of the government is to encourage and motivate highly efficient employees. “Personnel are all important” is not just a slogan but an imperative of the development. It was true 80 year ago; it will remain so in the future. Setting up an efficient personnel incentive program is key to business success. In H1 2011 a flexible (free) remuneration package of employees of all the levels is planned to be introduced both in the public and private sectors. It is suggested to link bonuses, including salary increments of executives of private companies, to specific results, returns from innovation projects and exports. Incentive programs have to apply to everybody as the company’s administration cannot ensure success without support of all employees.
*** In H1 2011 the government together with the oblast executive committees will elaborate almost 200 legal acts that will help remove administrative barriers to the economic growth, promote private initiative and contribute to the economic growth and wellbeing of the Belarusian people. Increasing GDP, trade surplus and other economic indicators is ultimately aimed at raising living standards of Belarusian people. This is not just a goal, but the essence of the work of the government.
