Shumchanka: Small business law not signed yet


The head of the association of entrepreneurs Perspectiva has commented on Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s statements made today.

The Belarusian President conducted a meeting dedicated to entrepreneurship on Tuesday. Lukashenka warned entrepreneurs against listening to chairperson of Perspectiva Anatol Shumchanka: "Stay away from all those Shumchankas or anyone else."

The results of the meeting are positive, Shumchanka told Euroradio.

Anatol Shumchanka: "As you can see, the final decision has not been made. They could simply gather and sign it… But they haven’t! They are still discussing the new law. It means that we have been heard. This is the main result now."

However, there were no representatives of small business at the meeting – only medium and big, Shumchanka noted.

Private entrepreneurs wrote a letter to the Belarusian President, Euroradio reported earlier. They are protesting against the introduction of new changes in small business.
