Belarus, Japan make plans for new projects in microelectronics, robot technology, IT

MINSK, 26 October (BelTA) – Belarus and Japan intend to implement new joint projects in the area of microelectronics, robot technology, and information technologies. The plans were discussed as Chairman of the International Affairs and National Security Commission of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Sergei Rakhmanov met with Ambassador of Japan to Belarus Hiroki Tokunaga, BelTA has learned.

Sergei Rakhmanov and Hiroki Tokunaga discussed Belarus-Japan cooperation prospects, opportunities for implementing new joint projects. The senator mentioned Belarus’ interest in stronger contacts with Japan in spheres of mutual interest.

Work is in progress on new joint projects in microelectronics and robot technology. Representatives of the Belarusian private sector are involved in this work.

One of the projects under consideration provides for cooperation in forecasting consequences of dangerous natural phenomena, including earthquakes and tsunamis. “We have very advanced information technologies. Modelling can be used to precisely forecast what natural cataclysms can result in,” said Sergei Rakhmanov. “The work can be done together with Japanese specialists. Our methods can produce additional results.”

Hydrogen energy is another promising sphere of cooperation. Taking into account the future launch of the Belarusian nuclear power plant Belarus is interested in Japanese technologies for storing hydrogen. “Japan is a world leader in hydrogen energy. It is an environmentally friendly source of energy. It would be good to work together in this field,” added Sergei Rakhmanov.
