Belarus for the first time will host a session of the General Assembly of the International Electrotechnical Commission. Leading experts of one of the oldest non-governmental organization of the world will gather in Minsk in October.
They set standards in all areas related to technological progress: electrical engineering, electronics, communication technology, green energy, and energy efficiency. In world trade, their share is about 20% of the turnover.
By tradition, IEC General Assemblies are held in high-status countries with advanced high-tech industry as well as in promising regions. Belarus is going to become one of the leading countries in this field.
Viktor Nazarenko, head of the State Committee for Standardization of the Republic of Belarus:
For Belarus, the most important is the increased involvement of our industries in all events organized by the IEC. If the industry wakes up, looks beyond Belarus, reads international standards, and starts to develop products with these requirements, we will go up and become competitive.
