MINSK, 29 March (BelTA) – A common science and technology space is one of the fundamental goals of the Union State, Belarus’ Ambassador to Russia Dmitry Krutoi said at the expert and mass media forum “Union State. Scientific breakthrough”, BelTA has learned.

“A common science and technology space has been one of the basic goals of the Union State Treaty since 1999. This year we are marking the 25th anniversary of the Union State Treaty. By 8 December I would like to take stock of the results and build a better understanding where we stand in our journey towards this goal,” said Dmitry Krutoi.

He noted that such important projects as the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, space projects (Earth remote sensing satellites, the flight of the Belarusian cosmonaut to the ISS) have been implemented jointly with Russia. Cooperation in microelectronics, radio electronics, genetics and agriculture is also a priority. Promising avenues of cooperation include shipbuilding, civil aircraft construction, and Arctic exploration.

Belarusian scientists show great results, the ambassador noted. A reminder, Belarus entered the top ten countries in the world in the “graduates in science and engineering” subindex of the Global Innovation Index. In the “human capital and research” subindex it is among the 40 best countries in the world. The share of exports of science-intensive and high-tech products is more than 40%.
