BRICS could create professional training centre

On 8 May 2015, Russian Labour and Social Security Minister Maxim Topilin met with Chinese Human Resources and Social Security Minister Yin Weimin during the course of Russian-Chinese talks in Moscow.

The ministers discussed issues related to the economic development of both counties, the situation in the labour market and activities in the employment sphere under Russia's current BRICS Presidency and China's G20 Presidency in 2016.

Mr Topilin proposed creating a professional training centre in Russia, China, or other partner countries.

The ministers agreed to discuss the initiative in detail at the first BRICS Labour Ministers Meeting.
