Azerbaijan, Baku, September 25 / Trend H. Valiyev /
The Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry took part in the formation of a work plan of the "Center of Skill" of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in 2011, the Regional Commonwealth of Communications (RCC) said.
The issue was considered at the seventh meeting of the Leading Committee of the ITU Center of Skill for the CIS countries and the 21-st meeting of the RCC Commission on Human Resources Development, which took place in Turkmenistan on September 15-16.
The ITU initiative to establish "Centers of Skill" was implemented for the CIS countries.
Over 1,200 specialists from CIS countries and other regions were trained within the four national nodes (Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine) in the ITU "Center of Skill" for CIS countries from 2007-2010.
The ITU "Centre of Skill" for the CIS countries is an important component in training and retraining of specialists. According to the participants, the activity of the ITU Center of Skill for the CIS countries must continue in a self-financing basis because the ITU has stopped financing the project.
Further cooperation must be realized within the resolution 73 on the activity of the ITU Centres of Skill, approved by the World Conference on Development Communication, held in Hyderabad (India) from May 24-June 4.
It was proposed to keep a mechanism of control and coordination of the EU "Center of Skill" for the CIS countries in the same format (Leading Committee, the national coordinators).
The Administrations of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine must confirm the credentials of national coordinators of the ITU Centre of Skill for the CIS countries.
It was proposed for national coordinators to send an action plan to the leading committee and the RCC Executive Committee for 2011.
The RCC 22-nd meeting on Human Resources Development and the eighth meeting of the Leading Committee of the ITU Centre of Skill for the CIS countries will take place in the first half of 2011.
