(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 13 - According to the Lithuanian Ministry of Economy and Innovation, the 'Lithuanian Laser Laboratory' launched in Taiwan on Monday, September 11, with the purpose of expediting the development of laser and other innovative technologies. 14 Lithuanian laser and photonics businesses provided €1.5 million in laboratory equipment to the Laboratory's establishment. Taiwan has also committed €1.5 million in the construction of new laser professional facilities. Over the last decade, Lithuanian manufacturing of electrical and optical devices has increased by roughly 15% per year. Products made in Lithuania are shipped to major EU member states as well as laboratories and research centres in the United States and Japan.
    'The opening of the Lithuanian Laser Laboratory in Taiwan is another very important step towards strengthening the cooperation between Lithuania and Taiwan. In the field of lasers, Lithuania is a well-known name globally; 90 percent of laser products manufactured in Lithuania are exported to more than 100 countries worldwide. Combining the scientific and technological potential of Lithuania and Taiwan, the new research centre will undoubtedly be a great technological incentive and ensure innovative solutions in the rapidly growing laser sector', said the Minister of the Economy and Innovation.
