MINSK, Nov 11 President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko promised that In 10-15 years, all villages in the country will become agro-towns.
“The village is becoming different. There will be no more old villages, of which we had hundreds of thousands. There will be agro-towns. Large villages will remain. After 10-15 years of work, or , and earlier there will be only agro-towns,” the press service quotes Lukashenka, who spoke at the plenary session of the republican seminar-conference on the restoration and use of reclaimed lands in Tolochin in the north of the republic.
The President noted that people in small settlements want to have all the amenities and live comfortably in good houses. “We won’t build it in every village and on a farm, so we came to build agro-towns. So that they would be the same in terms of living standards as in a city. And since it will also be an agro-town in a village, people will strive to more,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
