MINSK, October 29 (BelTA) – The 100th anniversary since the Belarusian State University (BSU) was founded is a historic event not only for the university but also for the country.

There is not a single company or organization in Belarus where your graduates do not work. Around 185,000 skilled workers have been trained for various branches of the Belarusian economy. A big thank you for that. I sincerely wish you the warmest, certainly further development, prosperity, the very best and the best of health for each of you, ”she emphasized.
Natalya Kochanova added that the Belarusian State University is actively involved in the fulfillment of the tasks that are important for the country. “Today, BSU experts and scientists work with us on the development of laws. We are all now working together on the Constitution. I have already seen approaches to prevent the spread of the COVID infection. These are the challenges we face in life as you move forward with the country, ”she said. “We understand that it is not easy, that it involves a lot of work. And you know how reverently the President treats educators, students, and the work of university professors. There was a meeting with students in this hall not so long ago. Today I have the great honor of reading the President’s greetings on the occasion of the 100th anniversary. “
Natalya Kochanova also presented state awards to BSU employees.
