Belarusian scientific community urged to focus on practice-oriented topics


The scientific community should focus on practice-oriented topics, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a ceremony to award Doctor of Sciences diplomas and professor certificates to scientific and pedagogical workers in Minsk on 9 February, BelTA has learned.

"We must pay more attention to practice-oriented topics, on the things that are needed today: from military sciences and security to civilian life. This makes a lot of practical sense," the head of state said.

The president noted that huge amounts of money are earmarked for important areas of science, especially in foreign countries. Many foreign investors are ready to invest significant financial resources in various promising developments. “Everything is needed today, and everybody is ready to invest in everything. But you need to show the product and prove its worth first. The production will follow then," the Belarusian leader said.

We need to act promptly, Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. "We need to seize the moment. The pendulum swung our way. We need to use this time, because tomorrow it will be too late. Tomorrow, the world will calm down and grow fat in the newly redivided world. The world will be different. No one is disputing this today. Therefore, we need to seize the moment,” the head of state said. “If we succeed in harnessing this opportunity, we will reap the benefits. This is the basis of our independence. If there is no forward movement, and a fast, powerful one at that, nothing is going to come of it."
