Belarus to adopt state electric transport program before yearend

Belarus plans to adopt its state electric transport development program before the end of 2017, Belarus' First Deputy Industry Minister Gennady Svidersky told a press conference on 19 September, BelTA has learned.

“The state electric transport development program is being developed by the National Academy of Sciences following the instruction of the head of state. I think that the program will be ready and adopted by the government before the end of the year,” Gennady Svidersky said.

In his words, the country has been long using an electric motor drive, including in BelAZ haul trucks. Belarus needs additional measures to develop its electric cars. “The state program will include training in higher education institutions, the creation of conditions for designing electric transport, and a set of measures to promote the production of electric transport and charging stations,” the first deputy minister said.
