The Consulate General of India in HCMC held the annual ITEC Day 2011 over the weekend as part of the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) program.

It was a chance for Vietnamese students who have received Indian scholarships under the ITEC scholarship program since 1996 to meet and exchange together.

The ITEC program started in 1964 as an assistance program to developing countries. The program aims to share India’s socio-economic and technical achievements with other developing countries.

The program helps these nations in building up skilled manpower, augmenting financial resources and transferring technology. The program consists of airfares, tuition fee, accommodation and living allowance.

The ITEC training program
extends to developing countries over with 5,000 scholarships having been granted. These schools conduct over 200 short, medium and long-term courses every year.

Annually, 75 ITEC scholarships are offered to southern Vietnam. The most popular courses that Vietnamese scholars are interested in are information technology, English language, financial management, agricultural practices, environmental technology and biotechnology.
