An agreement on co-operation between the Academy of Public Administration (under the aegis of the President of the Republic of Belarus) and the China Executive Leadership Academy of Pudong (CELAP) has been signed in Minsk by rectors Anatoly Morozevich and Xia Quianming.
The agreement envisages development of co-operation on traditional issues: joint research, and educational and scientific events (seminars, conferences and symposiums). The two universities will also exchange teachers and professors — to give lectures, conduct practical lessons, and give consultations on the continuous education of managerial personnel (for state and local authorities). The document enshrines joint consultative activity for Belarusian and Chinese state organisations.
“There is no doubt that co-operation with China is of great significance for Belarus,” noted Mr. Morozevich on signing the document. He believes that Chinese experience in training managerial staff combines recent developments at educational establishments in the USA, Europe, South-Eastern Asia and Australia (with which China actively co-operates).
The Belarusian Academy of Public Administration liaises with universities in over 20 countries.
