Belarus to help Sudan in energy sector staff training

The Belarusian Foreign Ministry has signed a cooperation agreement with the Sudan today.

It is planned that Belarusian specialists will help design energy facilities in that African country and improve the skills of specialists in this field. The focus is primarily on agriculture, industry, energy and healthcare.

Vladimir Potupchik, Minister of Energy of the Republic of Belarus:
Sudan is our very important partner on the African continent. The decisions made today will allow us to give concrete substance to our cooperation in the field of industry, agriculture, energy, petrochemical and other industries.
With regard to energy, we have agreed that we will do whatever is necessary to help our Sudanese friends in the training of national personnel.

Mohamed Zayed Awad, Minister of Oil and Gas of the Republic of the Sudan: 
This visit has opened new avenues for us in cooperation with Belarus. For example, we have joint prospects in the field of health and agriculture. We are interested in the Belarusian technologies. There is a big chance that they will be implemented in the Sudanese markets and that our specialists will be further trained by Belarus.
