MINSK, 20 January (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko is set to visit the science and technology exhibition Intellectual Belarus in Minsk, BelTA has learned.
The president gave instructions to organize an exhibition of scientific achievements as he met with Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus Vladimir Gusakov in October 2022: “We will choose a good venue not just to report on achievements but also to show as many people as possible what we can do and what our science can do. Unfortunately, we are still doing little to promote both the Academy of Sciences and the achievements of our science. We need to think about it together with the Administration, the government and choose a place for such an exhibition. There is a lot we can show to people,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
The Intellectual Belarus expo will be held in the national exhibition center BelExpo on 20-22 January (14 Pobeditelei Avenue, Minsk). Admission is free on 21-22 January from 10.00 to 17.30.

The exposition will be divided into several clusters: artificial intelligence, information technology, robotics; innovative instrument making; electric transport and its basic components; defense industry and military science; environment, nature management; biotechnology; pharmacy, healthcare, medicine; agro-industrial complex, food; youth initiatives.
The exhibition will focus on interdisciplinary and intersectoral relationships “science - education - industries”.
