In the Chinese-Belarusian Industrial Park "Great Stone", serious attention is paid to the joint development of scientific and technical developments and the implementation of innovative start-ups. This was stated in an exclusive interview with Xinhua by Kirill Koroteev, First Deputy General Director of CJSC Industrial Park Development Company, after listening to the speech of Chinese President Xi Jinping at the opening ceremony of the Zhongguancun-2021 Forum.
He noted that the Iskra program is being implemented in the park for the search, selection, financing and incubation of innovative projects, which involves Chinese, Belarusian, Russian and other financial partners.
“The platform for the development of new technologies and their commercialization is the innovation center for cooperation in the field of scientific and technological achievements, built at the expense of technical and economic aid from China at the end of last year. It is planned that the center will conduct research in the most advanced areas, and the first joint project has already become the research center of the Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the Academy of Sciences of Guangdong province, "he said.
“The new decree on the park, which came into force on September 17 this year, also provides for a special preferential tax policy for start-ups and venture capital funds. Therefore, both at the level of legislation and at the level of practical work, the park takes an active part in the development of innovations and integration within the framework of the Belt and Road project, "added K. Koroteev.
