MINSK, 3 September (BelTA) – The Belarus-China technopark in Changchun, China will greatly contribute to stepping up joint research and industrial integration, Chairman of the State Committee on Science and Technology of Belarus Aleksandr Shumilin said as he took part in the Belarusian-Chinese innovation forum “From joint projects to an integrated ecosystem” that is running online on 3-4 September, BelTA learned from the press service of the committee.

“Belarus is an active participant in the global Belt and Road project. The Belarus-China technopark in the city of Changchun will get an important role in the project. Thanks to our Chinese partners, the complex of buildings of the technopark has already been built. Work is currently underway to attract joint high-tech projects,” Aleksandr Shumilin said.

During the forum, the founders of the technopark – the State Committee on Science and Technology and the government of the province of Jilin – will register the first resident companies. They include the China-Belarus center for research and development of precision medical equipment, the Belarus-China center for joint development and use of carbon-to-carbon compound materials, and the Belarus-China center for development of small fruit crops.

Prospects for the operation of the technopark in Changchun will be in focus of the third session of the commission on cooperation in science and technology at the Belarusian-Chinese intergovernmental committee under the auspices of the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology and the State Committee on Science and Technology of Belarus.

In 2020-2021, Belarus and China are implementing 35 joint projects in microelectronics, optics and laser technology, new materials, and biotechnology. The number of bilateral R&D projects grew by 65% over 2015-2016.
