Minsk needs a smart-city development concept, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at a meeting with the Minsk City Executive Committee. The President said that the capital is to make a leap in quality in the nearest future in all spheres. Special attention was given to the capital’s appearance. Minsk is a European capital, and thus must look like one. President underlined that it’s necessary to come up with a smart-city development concept for Minsk, at least for the next five-year perspective. «The concept should include the vision of technological development, concrete projects and ways to implement them», the President said.
