MINSK, 20 April (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia's Nizhny Novgorod Oblast can carry out energy projects in third countries, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the negotiations with Governor of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast Valery Shantsev on 20 April, BelTA has learned.
“The experience that our organizations acquire while cooperating with Nizhny Novgorod company Atomstroyexport during the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant may be applied to carry out other energy projects,” Alexander Lukashenko noted. “It is important for us to have many Belarusian companies involved in this process. None of them has been marred by incompetence. This means that we can construct nuclear power plants throughout the world and our services will be in demand.”
According to the president, today many countries suffer from labor shortage. Belarus here has an advantage. The state has preserved vocational education system and risen it to a high level. “We have had requests from a number of countries, especially from the CIS member states, to help them train skilled workers. I have been to Turkmenistan recently, and local authorities requested our assistance in setting up vocational education and training system. Some other countries asked Belarus to help update it,” Alexander Lukashenko remarked.
“This is why we are happy that our workers and specialists are in demand. We have learned a lot. Now we are ready to join projects in any part of the world and construct similar or other objects in cooperation with Russia,” Alexander Lukashenko summarized.More about President
