- It turns out that we have to increase the amount and sell everything, - comments the document the entrepreneur Vladimir, the owner of a small store in one of capital’s trade centers. - So it turns out that it is our fault if products made in Belarus are not sold. Not the manufacturer. If so, then, indeed, why should the manufacturer improve the quality of products when entrepreneurs are forced to sell it?! … One should let officials to send such instructions directly to buyers or hang the sign over the entrance of every outlet: “Buy 10% of Belarusian goods or you won’t go out of the store”.
