Belarus’ economy needs brand new technologies


Belarusian economy needs conceptually new technologies, Chairman of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB), Mikhail Myasnikovich, told reporters commenting on the draft program on social and economic development of Belarus in 2011-2015.

Belarus has never set such a target to accelerate the economic growth by two thirds, the NASB Chairman said. “Naturally, it requires conceptually new approaches,” he said. According to Mikhail Myasnikovich, the country should establish new efficient and competitive industries. Traditional production methods and technological paradigms have rendered obsolete, the academician is convinced.

“The country’s development relies on intellectual machines and smart equipment. We need to introduce conceptually new technologies. For example, we have good tractors, but we need to design machines that would simultaneously diagnose and evaluate the state of the fuel and brake system,” Mikhail Myasnikovich said. Such innovations should be introduced in medicine, biotechnologies and other fields. We need to try introducing technologies of the fifth and sixth paradigms, Mikhail Myasnikovich said.
