The parliaments of Belarus and India will implement a joint project in education, Speaker of the Lok Sabha (lower house) of the Indian Parliament Sumitra Mahajan told the media after the talks with Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko in Minsk on 11 June, BelTA has learned.

The speakers signed an agreement on cooperation between the House of Representatives and the Lok Sabha. According to Sumitra Mahajan, the MPs will begin to interact in a new field. Belarusian youth is invited to India to participate in research activities in the field of law. She explained that Indian students, on the initiative of the Parliament, have been improving their knowledge in this area for three years already. They study the parliamentary bodies and traditions, the constitutions of different countries.

“We invite Belarusian students to join this program,” Sumitra Mahajan said and expressed the hope that the young people, who the Belarusian Parliament will send for training, will significantly improve their knowledge in the field of legislation and law. Sumitra Mahajan stressed that this is the first time that India has invited foreign students for such training. The fact that it is the Belarusians who can take advantage of this opportunity is a vivid testimony of the strong bilateral relations, Sumitra Mahajan added. Summing up the results of the talks in the House of Representatives, the speakers noted that the parties are set to reach a new level in bilateral cooperation. Vladimir Andreichenko noted that India is one of the key partners of Belarus in South Asia. In 2017 the trade between the two countries reached $455 million.

“This is not the limit. We have huge potential in this regard. Belarus and India have much to offer to each other,” the chairman of the House of Representatives stressed. He expressed confidence that by the joint efforts of the countries will be able to successfully implement a number of projects in various fields ranging from nano-technology to digital economy and culture. The MPs should play an important role. “We will assist in the implementation of mutually beneficial projects. This is what the agreement between the House of Representatives and Lok Sabha is aimed at,” Vladimir Andreichenko said.
