Belarus (bbabo.net), - An inventory of the property of the Union State (US) is planned this year, said State Secretary of the Union State Dmitry Mezentsev.
“Because during all this time, no real work was carried out to inventory all the property of the Union State. We believe that this year we will carry out such work through the efforts of the ministries of finance, the Federal Property Management Agency and the State Property Committee [of Belarus] in coordination and interaction with the Permanent Committee of the Union State,” he said after a meeting in Minsk with the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, TASS quoted him as saying.
Mezentsev pointed out the need to “think through mechanisms for attracting those financial results to the Union budget that are achieved when Union State programs are implemented, on which considerable funds are spent.”
“I [at the meeting with the President of Belarus] presented the parties’ proposals for the upcoming meeting of the Supreme State Council. These are reports from governments on what has been done, and reports from foreign ministers on they are carrying out within the framework of a coordinated foreign policy, and proposals from the ministries of transport on the development of the railway transport infrastructure of the Union State,” said the Secretary of State. — We have a special view of the document that I will now talk about - the Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development of the Union State until 2035. This is a response to the challenges of the time, this is taking into account the development of artificial intelligence, the challenges of the new technological order that we are witnessing.”
It is also expected to approve plans to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Belarus from the Nazi invaders during the Great Patriotic War and the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty establishing the Union Treaty. “We think that the presidents [of Belarussia] Alexander Grigorievich Lukashenko and Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin will support [the corresponding proposals] and a medal will be established for services to the development of the Union State, and those heraldic signs that will also be awarded along with gratitude and diplomas of the Supreme State council,” added Mezentsev.
When asked about the timing of the meeting of the Supreme State Council, the Secretary of State of the SG replied that it would take place “in the very near future.”
