Prakapovich: Belarusian goods will conquer Russian market, Baltic states

"No one will dictate the retail facilities to make the import ratio whether 85% or 15%. We, however, should create conditions for Belarusian goods to become more qualitative and competitive", BELTA news agency quoted Prakapovich as saying.

He also noted: "If our good conquer the Belarusian market, they will conquer the Russian market, the markets in Kazakhstan, the Baltic states, Ukraine. We have two priorities here: to conquer the market and expand imports across the borders of this country."

The Vice Premier reckons the imported goods should enjoy a priviliged condition in Belarus. He hopes the situation can be changed and "competition will be healthy."
