Speaking of the real sector of the economy, the Director of Vitebsk’s Display Design Bureau, Alexander Voitenkov, notes:

“We’re preserving our traditional niche in producing monitors able to operate under extreme conditions; our novelty is a 2.5m monitor (measured on the diagonal). We also have a 50-inch multimedia control panel, soon to launch at Lukoml hydro-electric station, for use in CIS counter-terrorist training. We understand the need for product diversification and, accordingly, are liaising with the military and beyond. We’ve produced a micro-display system combined with a fire-fighter’s mask, also developing industrial and street monitors and tables which can be installed at public transport stops, supermarkets and administrative buildings. Our developments enjoy demand in neighbouring Russia and have been displayed at international shows, such as in Malaysia. We’re ready to work in co-operation with Belarusian and foreign scientists, launching innovations into production, with the idea of making money. We want to discuss ways of ensuring efficient production at the All-Belarusian People’s Assembly.”

Anatoly Oladko, the Chief Doctor of Vitebsk Regional Clinical Hospital, is among 109 people representing the city of Vitebsk at the event. He is convinced health care has some way to go in terms of development, saying:


“In recent times, our hospital has transformed into a powerful medical centre, with kidney transplants among our landmark events, of which we are proud. We were the first in the region to conduct them, in 2015. People realise that health care requires investment, since it’s impossible to develop high technologies without funds, and the state does render assistance. However, health insurance may be the best way forward. We’ve already begun moving in this direction and we need to discuss it further, with schemes developed carefully. It’s an emotive subject, especially since prompt treatment is known to produce better results, such as in the fitting of artificial limbs or undertaking a rare (and expensive) operation. Those who pay for their own private treatment, or import equipment from abroad, show better responses.”
