Belarus, India cooperate in personnel retraining

Belarus and India has been efficiently developing relations in the area of the personnel retraining, BelTA learnt from Deputy Foreign Minister Viktor Gaisenok.

The Deputy Foreign Minister took part in a meeting in the embassy of India in Minsk on September 18. The meeting gathered Belarusian graduates who for the last 15 years have been retrained in the Indian universities in compliance with the Indian programme on economic and technical cooperation. Some 60 Belarusian specialists took such courses. The Indian government annually puts $200 million in the project that covers 156 countries.

"The programme aims at retraining in the state administration, management, medicine, military and technical area. We are grateful to the Indian side for the cooperation in this field," Viktor Gaisenok said.

This year the number of Belarusians taking part in the project will be expanded: 25 people will join retraining courses in India while only three or four specialists did it in the previous years.
