An information technology centre will be set up in Seychelles in 2011 in order to upgrade the skills of technicians. This news followed an agreement that was signed between Seychelles and India.

On February 11, 2010, Education Minister Bernard Shamlaye and Indian high commissioner Asit Kumar Nag signed the memorandum of understanding. The document was signed at the Ministry of Education’s conference room. At the signing, education principal secretary Jeanne Simeon, Seychelles Institute of Technology director Jean Rassool, representatives of the Information Communications Technology Department and other officials from the Ministry of Education were present.

Mr Shamlaye thanked Mr Nag for help in setting up this centre that is much-needed for Seychelles. Mr Nag said that the project is part of India’s ongoing cooperation to develop Seychelles’ human resources.
Mrs Simeon said that this joint venture between Seychelles and India followed President James Michel’s visit to India in August 2005.

The new centre will provide part-time training for technicians. Later, it will also provide training for IT teachers.
