Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko met with farmers in Alexandria on Saturday to discuss issues and challenges relating to agriculture, especially regarding land ownership.
The consensus among farmers was that the need to rent assets remains an obstacle. The farmers said it would be easier if the ownership of facilities could be transferred to them.
The farmers indicated that if they owned the facilities, they would be willing to maintain and develop them and undertake necessary modernization of the assets and facilities.
“This is not a case where the state must hold on to the assets such as, for example, an old pig farm, which would have been destroyed long ago," Lukashenko said. "I think we need to think through all the issues related to the ownership and solve them.”
indicated that this was an issue that would need to be worked on and that public opinion and society at large would have to play a role in the decision-making process.
