CEI business forum gathers over 200 energy-effective technology specialists in Minsk

MINSK, 4 December (BelTA) – The Central European Initiative business forum Energy-Effective and Ecological Technologies gathered in Minsk over 200 representatives of the business community, government agencies, and scientific circles from the CEI countries, BelTA learned from Belarusian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Oleg Kravchenko on 4 December.

“Decisions have been made to expand the format of participation in this forum and invite representatives of Chinese companies. They accepted the invitation with pleasure,” said Oleg Kravchenko.

In his words, the event is particularly important for the Central European Initiative since a business segment is added to the political dimension of the organization. “We are talking not only about initial contacts between companies and businesses of different countries but also about a more advanced form of cooperation. Within the framework of the business forum representatives of companies from a number of countries will discuss the assimilation, usage, and development of new energy-effective and ecological technologies. This is what the private sector is interested in since all of it improves performance and labor productivity. Every person is interested in it, too, because these technologies directly affect the environment,” explained the official.

“I am convinced that the participation of our experts, representatives of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus will allow us to offer new technologies, new approaches, and opportunities for cooperation,” noted the Belarusian deputy minister of foreign affairs.

Chairman of the State Standardization Committee of Belarus Viktor Nazarenko underlined that it is very profitable for the private sector to invest in the creation of new technologies, new types of equipment, and energy-saving products, including process equipment and consumer end products. “Things that save energy and generate profit for individual companies and consumers are in demand today,” he added.
