Belarus, China sign agreement on mutual recognition of education certificates
05 June 2019
MINSK - Belarus and China have signed an agreement on mutual recognition of education certificates. The document was made public on May 30, 2019.
The agreement says that education certificates issued in China shall be recognized in Belarus without additional authentication procedures. Conversely, education certificates issued in Belarus shall be recognized in China.
Previously, education certificates issued in China could only be used in Belarus after an official recognition procedure, which could last 2-3 months. With the new agreement in place, it will be less time-consuming to recruit Chinese specialists.
The agreement covers certification of construction companies, which need to provide professional qualification certificates of their senior personnel (engineers, construction managers, company directors). Education certificates are necessary for recruiting Chinese professionals to fill senior managerial positions.
