Nikolay Radoman, the Chairman of the Minsk Regional Agro-Industrial Union:
We need the help of scientists today. Further innovative development of the agricultural sphere, with the use of science, is needed. The time has come for genetics to be applied in our work with animals and plants. It’s necessary to focus more on raising the economic efficiency of agricultural production — including reducing prime cost and increasing the share of energy saving technologies. Quality also needs attention, since it raises the competitiveness of our products. Eventually, production costs should fall, while favourably influencing people’s quality of life.
We, manufacturers, have many times discussed our programme, jointly with scientists. We’ve made additions and ask you to adopt it. It will become another landmark step for rural development and the improvement of village workers’ lives.
