MINSK, 27 February (BelTA) - About 90 events are being implemented in Belarus as part of the country’s innovative development program, Deputy Chairperson of the State Committee for Science and Technology Tatiana Stolyarova said in a new episode of BelTA’s The Nation Speaks project.

Belarus’ innovative development program is a powerful mechanism aimed at innovative development of the country. Currently, about 90 events are being implemented, 40% of which are part of the highest (fifth and sixth) technological modes. Products made with the help of such modes are more competitive both within the country and on the world market.

Belarus has formed 12 state expert councils in the following areas: information and communication technologies, energy, construction and innovative materials, environment, mechanical engineering and instrumentation, agro-industrial and food technologies, socio-humanistic knowledge and economy, technologies to ensure national security.
