December 21, Minsk / Corr. BELTA /. Vladimir Orlovsky was appointed chairman of the State Customs Committee. The corresponding personnel decision was made today by President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, BelTA reports.
Up until now, Vladimir Orlovsky held the position of First Deputy Chairman. The head position at the State Customs Committee has remained vacant for over a month since Yuri Senko was appointed ambassador to China.
Alexander Lukashenko called the position of the chairman of the State Customs Committee one of extreme importance for the country. Therefore, the candidate for this position had been selected for a long time and scrupulously.
“We had to have appointed the head of the Customs Committee a long time ago, but those who suggested the candidates to me couldn't focus on one and I was rejecting all of them anyway. Frankly speaking, I initially rejected your candidacy as well and said I wanted several more candidates to choose from. I regretted my decision later on because I was buried under the huge number of candidates… I certainly know those people. I know better some of them and some less. But in the third round of deliberations I had to return to your candidacy,” the Head of state said.
The President called Vladimir Orlovsky a serious professional, the best in the Customs Authorities. This, as Alexander Lukashenko said, was the decisive factor in the appointment, "despite certain nuances." "At this stage, I have neglected all these nuances. I believe that you yourself will deal with them. You are a state man, and no one told me that you have deviated from the state line somewhere, and this is very crucial," he stressed.
