MTZ-branded tractor assembled to mark 5th anniversary of BISR

Belarusian Institute for Strategic Research (BISR) employees have assembled a branded tractor at Minsk Tractor Works (MTZ) to celebrate the organisation's fifth anniversary, and the event marked the launch of a BISR new project  Industrial and Patriotic Tourism – aimed to be implemented jointly with Ministry of Sports and Tourism, BelTA reports


Before the assembly of the branded tractor, the BISR employees were given a tour of the plant. The analysts had the opportunity to see prototypes of the equipment and witness first-hand the holy grail of the Minsk Tractor Works — the tractor assembly workshop.

The Director of the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Research, Oleg Makarov, noted that there is a trend today towards a return to the concept of material reality. “Only real material things happen here, at the Minsk Tractor Works. In the Year of Quality, we wanted to send a signal to ourselves and our colleagues that the future of Belarus is being created in such workshops.  Touching material things truly inspires as our employees are in a very good mood and become energised for further work.” 

Speaking of the organisation's fifth anniversary, the BISR director emphasised the upcoming goals. “There is a lot of work ahead. We will continue to move forward, improving the quality of our analysis as well as developing the areas and regions where we are not yet as competent. In fact, there is no time to rest on our laurels, we are celebrating our first anniversary practically on the go, working actively. It's now a challenging time as our analysts have a lot of important work,” Oleg Makarov summarised. 

BISR analyst Irina Rusak emphasised the importance of developing industrial tourism. This trend is beneficial not only for the enterprise itself but also for the economy. “It is an interesting and relevant topic. Industrial tourism may become one of the solutions to problems [such as personnel and investment]. It provides an opportunity not only to showcase ourselves to ordinary people but also to attract potential investors. By developing related tourism services, such an approach may strengthen the economy not only of the enterprise but also of the administrative unit and, subsequently, the entire region,” the specialist noted. 

Irina Rusak’s colleague, Dmitry Golubnichy, agreed, noting that the industry is strategically important for Belarus. “If we talk about the development of our country, promoting industry including through specialised tourism, can yield qualitatively new results in our work with youth and in dialogue with foreign partners. Thus, our industry may advance more effectively in various directions,” the analyst concluded.
