A PROMIS­ING NOV­ELTY

Economy of Belarus - - 2011-2015: FIVE YEARS OF GROWTH -

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.
