How did the economy work in 2017 and what are the challenges for achieving sustainable growth in the future? Today at the Council of Ministers a large report of the government, the National Bank and the regions will be held. It is planned that the head of state will take part in the meeting. Statistics on the results of last year is known – the economic growth is slightly more than two percent. Inflation did not exceed 5%. Today the parties will discuss the actual state of affairs in the capital and the regions and will see what is behind these figures. It is noteworthy that the conversation takes place approximately at the halfway point in the current five-year development plan for Belarus. This is an opportunity for additional adjustment of economic tactics and strategy.
