The main goal of my talk is to present a full list of the weak antiferromagnet, GMR, superconducting, geometrically frustrated and optic crystals which has been successfully grown in my lab for the past three decades and elucidate in a free discussion how and in what extent a group of highly experienced crystal growers from Belarus could be of help for a team of chemists, physicist and crystal growers from China to reach their outstanding desire to produce a high quality crystals for non-linear optic, opto-magnetic and magnetic applications. Taking in mind the level of expertise of both our teams and an extra high level of China Government support in overall crystal growth area I can oversee a significant success of the crystal growth group from Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, CAS in the near future.
