Lukashenko pledges support for Belarusian science

MINSK, 5 February (BelTA) – We will provide comprehensive support for the development of Belarusian science, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with representatives of the academia, BelTA has learned.

After the ceremony to award doctoral and professor certificates, Aleksandr Lukashenko spoke with representatives of the academia, who told the president about their research and put forward their suggestions in various areas.

Aleksandr Lukashenko thanked the scientists for the useful and interesting conversation. “Believe me, this is not just an experience to me, this is new knowledge. I learn from you,” the head of state noted. “I value the minutes and hours when I can communicate with you, and I am very grateful to you for this. We will support scientists as best as we can. Not just because I am a philanthropist, but because we will never achieve anything without science in the modern world,” he added.

Aleksandr Lukashenko pointed out that in the past few years, Belarus devoted a lot of effort to develop various sectors, and scientists played a significant role in this process, be it healthcare or agriculture. The head of state said he was directly involved in discussing some matters, making decisions and giving the necessary instructions. “We have succeeded. That was a difficult path and a difficult period,” he said.

Addressing the scientists as representatives of the Belarusian elite, the president recommended taking a careful look at the ongoing events in the country and avoiding drawing hasty conclusions. Ministers, generals, professors are all highly respected figures in people’s eyes and should act wisely, Aleksandr Lukashenko noted. “You are people of knowledge, you shape people’s opinions, you are the face of the country, and you should protect this country,” he stressed.

The president and scientists discussed in detail ways to improve the educational process and practice-based training and employer-sponsored education programs. Attention was also given to new medical solutions. Against the backdrop of the pandemic, this topic is essential, and it is important to remember that the coronavirus is not the only disease that requires urgent treatment. Aleksandr Lukashenko was also briefed on modern solutions in agriculture and crop protection, which directly affects food security and performance of the agricultural industry.
