25.08.2021

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko today, during a working trip to Logoisk district, demanded to deal with indiscipline and lack of performance in agriculture, BelTA has learned.

At the Ostroshitsy farm, the head of state was informed about the prospects for the development of grain harvesters. The occasion for the event was an unusual jubilee: the day before, it was 25 years since Gomselmash started producing Belarusian harvesters on behalf of the President.

"THE EVENT IS SOME SYMBOLOGICAL. BUT DEDICATED TO AN VERY IMPORTANT STAGE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR STATE. EVEN NOT AGRICULTURE. THERE WAS, AND THERE WAS NOTHING TO CLEAN IT. AND THEN SERIOUS DECISIONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN THE PLAN OF WHAT TO REMOVE BREAD, "ALEXANDER LUKASHENKO NOTED.

At the same time, the head of state could not ignore the negative aspects, noting the mismanagement of machinery and crops during the harvest. “We know how to do everything, but this carelessness, indiscipline, lack of performance is a disaster. We have to end it,” the President demanded.

"The event is somewhat symbolic. But it is dedicated to a very important stage in the development of our state. Not even agriculture. We remember well when people had nothing to eat, people had to be fed. And without bread, how? It happened that some kind of bread in the field was, but there was nothing to clean it with. And then serious decisions were made in terms of what to clean the bread with, "Alyaksandr Lukashenka reminded.

According to the head of state, this decision, made a quarter of a century ago, was difficult. Opinions were heard to abandon the production of our own harvesting equipment and buy it in Germany. However, in a couple of years, Belarusian industrialists managed to produce their own car. "This made it possible for us to approach the creation of completely new combines, which today are already competing with the same German ones," the President stressed.

We need to end it,” the head of state demanded.

For 25 years, the domestic grain harvesting machine building has achieved a lot. Today, 11 models of equipment are produced in 75 modifications. Another 7 new models will be launched in the near future.

According to Alexander Novikov, General Director of Gomselmash, if last year the holding produced just over 1.8 thousand self-propelled vehicles, then in the first half of the year - almost 1,000 units of equipment. "We plan to produce 2,170 cars by the end of the year. We have already formed a package of orders by the middle of next year," he informed the President.

Alexander Novikov told the head of state about the prospects for the development of the enterprise, the improvement of existing models of combines and the development of new ones. Alexander Lukashenko recalled his demand for more active import substitution, although a lot has been done in this direction at Gomselmash: over the past five years, the import intensity of production has been halved.

“This must be done. Otherwise, we will make the hardware, but we buy smart units - hydraulics, electronics - in the West. We must do it ourselves,” the President stressed.

At the Ostroshitsy farm, the head of state got acquainted with samples of grain harvesters, other agricultural machinery and import-substituting products (components for grain harvesters produced by Belarusian enterprises). There were also demonstrated the seeding units of OJSC "Lidagroprommash", which is part of the holding "Gomselmash", and the holding "AMKODOR".
