President wants Belarusian glass making to reach world standards within next few years
Within the next few years the Belarusian glass making industry should reach world standards. Belarusian head of state Alexander Lukashenko gave the instruction to the government and heads of enterprises at a government session dedicated to the national glass making industry development, reported Belta.
"By November 7, 2010 the Glass-Making Development Programme should be accomplished so that we could see the compliance of products with European and world standards," stressed the President. "There are examples of it: Yelizovo Plant and Gomel Glass Container Plant," he added.
The President asked to pay special attention to energy intensity as well as ecological safety. Both of the parameters should be kept in line with European levels, underscored Alexander Lukashenko.
The head of state remarked, the government should be frugal about spending money. The bulk of the available money should be invested in manufacturing. If there is effective manufacturing, other spheres of the country's life will develop, too, noted the President.
