MINSK, 19 September (BelTA) – Belarus and Pakistan are working to develop a joint university of applied skills. The matter was discussed at a meeting of Belarus' Ambassador Andrei Yermolovich with Pakistan's Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood, BelTA learned from the Belarusian diplomatic mission.

“Pakistan is mainly interested in the possibility of involving Belarusian experts in organizing systemic training of young specialists in tractor and other farming machinery maintenance, construction and other related areas. The parties confirmed the readiness to continue work on the establishment of a joint university of applied skills with the use of Belarus' best practices in professional and technical training,” the embassy said.

Andrei Yermolovich and Shafqat Mahmood discussed the implementation of bilateral documents in education. Special attention was attached to the memorandum of understanding on cooperation in vocational training, signed on 5 October 2016 during the visit of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko to Pakistan.

Another important area of cooperation is the possibility of developing a resource center on renewable energy in Pakistan.
