According to BelTA the Chinese company Huawei, one of the world’s top three manufacturers and suppliers of telecommunication equipment for wired, mobile, and optical communication networks, presented a project for creating a smart transport system in Minsk before the Belarus government on 4 March.
It is one of the projects that were discussed during the visit of Prime Minister of Belarus Mikhail Myasnikovich to China in January 2014. Back then the sides talked a lot about the architecture of Minsk’s smart transport system. The Belarusian and Chinese sides were very close to working out an algorithm to take care of the matter. Slightly more than one month later, on 4 March representatives of the company OOO Bel Huawei Technologies presented the finished project.
The Belarus Prime Minister underlined that the project’s scale and innovative value are unparalleled in Belarus and possibly in the post-Soviet space. In turn, Director General of Bel Huawei Technologies Zhang Dongliang said he believes the project will bring about new opportunities for Chinese business in Belarus.
It was noted during the presentation that among other things the project's implementation will allow raising the performance of the mass transit system and the safety of vehicular traffic in addition to reducing emissions into the atmosphere.
