Russia and Belarus will jointly produce components for microchips. The relevant agreement between the parties has already been signed. This was stated by the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
According to him, Belarusian companies have already started supplying critical electronic components to Russia.
In addition, the new joint venture will develop and manufacture photomasks. They are necessary for the production of microcircuits
added Alexander Lukashenko.
It is expected that cooperation in this area will be strengthened.
It should be noted that the statements of the President of Belarus were made during his visit to the Planar plant in Minsk. It was founded in 1962 as a company specializing in the development and production of lines for the production of microcircuits.
At the same time, technology market experts point out that the establishment of joint production of components for microchips with Belarus will not solve the problem of the shortage of these components. Russia will remain dependent on products from Chinese and Taiwanese factories.
Trade media recall that in 2019 alone, Russia imported nearly $650 million worth of chips and semiconductors. At the same time, in recent years, our country’s need for microchips has increased markedly. The very fact that Russia is taking a step towards technological independence is assessed by experts as extremely positive.
