Ulaanbaatar, February 3, 2023 /MONTSAME/. Mongolia and India maintain close cooperation in the education sector in the framework of our two countries' diplomatic relations. Under this cooperation, the Government of India implemented a scholarship program for Mongolian women this year.


In order to increase the participation of women in introducing solar energy into local towns, Mongolian 28 women from 11 aimags were engaged in three months of intensified international training program in off grid solar energy technologies, funded by the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation program in India. According to the officials, the trainees acquired the required knowledge and skills to use a clean and sustainable solar energy system that operates independently from the integrated power grid system. For example, installation of solar panels on the roof of the residential buildings, assembly of LED and home lighting systems, installation of solar water pumping systems, etc.


Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of India to Mongolia Mohinder Pratap Singh said, “Under the cooperation between Mongolia and India, 350 Mongolian professionals have participated in professional development training in this field. The Oil refinery plant is going to be put into operation soon. Thus, this kind of training will play a vital role in preparing the required personnel. I hope that our two countries' cooperation, especially in improving the solar system technology, will be further maintained and strengthened.”
