MINSK, 26 January (BelTA) – Organizations affiliated with the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB) posted an aggregate export of $50 million in 2021, Chairman of the Presidium of the NASB Vladimir Gusakov said at a press conference dedicated to the Day of Belarusian Science and the 100th anniversary of Belarusian academic science, BelTA has learned.

Vladimir Gusakov noted that NASB organizations work not only for the domestic market, but also for export. “According to preliminary data, in 2021 the export of NASB organizations amounted to $50 million. We managed to maintain momentum despite the pandemic and the sanctions. We keep working with our foreign partners and colleagues," he said.

Vladimir Gusakov cited KhimPharmSintez, a producer of the latest medicines, as an example of a successful exporting company. The company managed to grow its export from $227,000 in 2020 to $717,000 in 2021,” the academician said.

According to him, the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is a unique organization in terms of its status in the country, tasks and competences. It takes projects from idea to production, has its own manufacturing facilities, collaborates with almost all large enterprises of the country.

According to Vladimir Gusakov, when researchers from other countries come to the academy, they praise its performance and management processes. “Russian colleagues have been actively talking about this lately. Even Ukrainian colleagues praise us, although they have their own Academy of Sciences, though their academy does not have such production facilities,” he informed.

The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is the largest generator of knowledge, a source of new ideas and solutions, and, as a result, the country's biggest creator of intellectual property, a leader in innovation, Vladimir Gusakov stressed.
