What to do with self-employed entrepreneurs? Candidates’ opinions

Let us ask the question to all the presidential candidates.

Tatstsyana Karatkevich


“I am against such decrees (obligatory certification of goods – Euroradio). Our goal is to let the small business develop. Such restrictions will make entrepreneurs close down their business and the unemployment rate will increase.”

Syarhei Haidukevich


“I said that we had to struggle with it when I was in the House of Representatives. We should get rid of the numerous restrictions and work on a complex governmental programme instead. It should include 10 or 15 points. They should decide what to do with state and private trade. They may include it in one tariff. It is just necessary to work on it.”


Mikalai Ulahovich


“As a presidential candidate, I can say that we do not need it all. Private entrepreneurs should be exempt from certification. Let them do business. However, my opinion about Chinese toys is different. I do not want our children to play with toys that have not been type-approved.”

Alyaksandr Lukashenka


“Everyone will work in equal conditions after January 1, 2016. There will be no more delays. There will be no more requests like these: “Let us sell our goods first or impose a bigger tax on us”. Everyone will be equal. We have already made a great concession. We should be aiming for the civilized form of trade. It is not normal to bring whole sacks of goods without certificates here.”
