The drivers from Haryana could soon be behind the wheel on roads in Canada, if the state government had its way.
During a meeting with Manitoba premier Greg Selinger here on Monday, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda offered to send trained doctors and drivers from his state to Manitoba province in Canada.
The Chief Minister told the visiting delegation that the drivers in Haryana were well-known for their skills and enterprise. He told Selinger that if special training was needed for the drivers to adapt to conditions in Canada, they could be trained at the driving schools at Kaithal, Bahadurgarh and Rohtak.
Hooda said if Canada provided a medical syllabus, Indian doctors could also be trained for work there.
This would help doctors save time as they would not need to take up further studies in Canada.
While extolling the virtues of his state, Hooda told Selinger that experts could be brought from Manitoba to train the students here.
“Haryana is an educational hub. It has a number of prestigious technical institutions, which provide skilled training to youth. Their skills can further be upgraded as per the syllabus of Manitoba. We invite experts from Manitoba to train our manpower as per their standards,” he said.
During the meeting, Selinger signed an MoU to facilitate the food processing industry in Haryana.
Haryana already has 13 financial and technical collaborations with Canadian companies with an investment of nearly five million Canadian Dollars.
