The president emphasized: “Despite a challenging external environment, we have managed to prevent a decline in production, to keep the job market stable and to maintain momentum in economy. We manufacture competitive and innovative products and run high-tech projects in nuclear energy, automotive industry, machine tool making, and transport. The share of domestic component parts and solutions is growing. Step by step we are exploring new markets, we are set to reduce costs and improve the quality of our goods and services.”

Genuine successes, real breakthroughs have been achieved in such complex, science-intensive areas as materials science, aircraft engineering, microelectronics and space research. For the first time in the history of independent Belarus, a Belarusian cosmonaut has been sent to the ISS,” the president noted. “But the most important thing is that the Union State has a clear-cut social focus. Citizens of the two countries enjoy equal rights and guarantees, and can take advantage of living, working, studying and traveling within the Union State without restrictions.

“On this solemn day, I congratulate you, dear friends, on our common holiday and wholeheartedly wish you good health, peace, happiness and prosperity,” the head of state noted.
