The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB) and the Academy of Sciences of China’s Shandong Province signed an agreement on all-round scientific and technical cooperation in Minsk on 24 May, BelTA has learned.

The document was inked by Vladimir Gusakov, Chairman of the NASB Presidium, and Wang Yinglong, President of Shandong Academy of Sciences.

The signing ceremony was held at the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus as part of the visit of a delegation led by Shandong Province Vice Governor Wang Shujian to Belarus.  

Vladimir Gusakov noted that in recent times Belarus has welcomed delegations from different provinces of China. He emphasized that the launch of specific projects is an important achievement in the bilateral relations.

The Chairman of the NASB Presidium said it is a great honor for the Belarusian Academy of Sciences to receive a large delegation from Shandong. “The delegation comprises high-ranking officials. This means that we will consolidate our agreements,” Vladimir Gusakov pointed out. On behalf of the NASB, he expressed readiness to develop constructive cooperation. “We are open to cooperation and ready to share our findings and solutions,” the Chairman of the NASB Presidium said.

Vladimir Gusakov told the Chinese delegation that the NASB operates some 60 scientific institutions.

The collaboration can be closer and more productive in a number of areas,” Vladimir Gusakov stressed.
