I instructed to develop and introduce seven draft laws on combating extremism and terrorism, as well as the ones concerning counterintelligence, dactyloscopic and genomic registration, probation and strengthening of information security. We need to introduce these laws. The most important thing is to maintain security and stability in society. I am asking MPs to take this task very seriously.


The President made instructions to carry out works on the issues concerning amendments to the Land Code. The Head of State said that the document would be directed to the Parliament that collected and sorted all the proposals of the Commission members.



We are working on attracting investment in agriculture all over the world. Our state also wanted to attract more investment to raise the level and quality of agriculture. But if the work began from the explanations, then on legislative field, the situation would have been different probably. These aspects should be taken into account at working on the draft law regulations in the agricultural sector.


MPs also have to discuss the republican budget for 2017-2019. The President instructed to maintain the volume of expenditure on state-guaranteed social package.



The implementation of the anti-crisis plan of the Government and the National Bank will continue, it will be supplemented by new measures in a timely manner.
