India seeks to boost co-operation with Belarus in IT

Indian companies are willing to step up cooperation with Belarusian partners in the IT industry, said India's Ambassador Manoj Bharti. Some Indian companies see Belarus as an outsourcing territory for their software developments, which they plan to sell to Europe, Manoj Bharti told the media.

He said that the Indian embassy expects an increase in the number of offices of Indian IT-companies in Belarus.

He stressed that the Indian companies which came to Belarus were impressed by the level of training of Belarusian IT specialists.

"They appreciate it and they are sure Belarus is the right choice for joint partnerships," he stated.

A Belarusian-Indian training centre in Minsk was opened in 2011. It specializes in professional improvement of IT specialists and professors from technical universities. More than 2,000 specialists have already undergone training there.

The centre has hired leading teachers from Belarus, India and other countries, specialists of major IT companies, educational and research centres. The training programme is based on most relevant global trends.
