Belarus to sign education agreements with Indonesia, Ecuador, Serbia

MINSK, 15 February (BelTA) – Belarus plans to sign intergovernmental agreements on cooperation in the education sector with Indonesia, Ecuador, Serbia and Malaysia, Belarus’ Education Minister Igor Karpenko said at the ministerial board meeting held on 15 February to take stock of the ministry’s performance in 2016 and outline the main tasks for 2017, BelTA has learned.

“The draft intergovernmental agreements with Indonesia, Ecuador, Serbia and Malaysia, and also the ministerial agreements with India, Tajikistan, Singapore and Thailand are currently at the approval stage,” Igor Karpenko said.

In 2016 Belarus signed the intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in education with Poland, the agreement on the mutual recognition of education documents with Pakistan, the ministerial agreements on cooperation in education, science and the youth policy with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia, China, Pakistan, and Turkey.

In 2016 the number of foreigners receiving education in Belarus increased by more than 1,000 to succeed 20,000 students. People from more than 100 countries come to Belarus to get education. The major export markets of education services are the CIS countries (Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan), South and Southeast Asia (Bangladesh, Vietnam, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. Belarus maintains permanent volumes in the export of its education services to China and Russia.

According to Igor Karpenko, the policy of multi-pronged international activity in the education sector should be continued.
