Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has held a government session to discuss the most topical issues related to the country’s development. The meeting was arranged in view of the recent changes in global economy and politics. Today global integration processes are getting superseded by the recognition of primacy of national interests. Countries try to protect domestic markets, develop manufacturing in their own territories. Belarus is an open and export-oriented state. This is why the new trends have to be taken into account, Alexander Lukashenko said. The meeting also discussed Decree No.3 “On preventing social dependency” and addressed relations with the closest partners.
