‘As part of cooperation with Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, we invited the guests to jointly define areas in education that are important for the development of their country's economy, and then it will be possible to formulate which University educational programs can meet training needs for Nigeria’, Sergii Sydorenko remarked after the meeting. ‘Training several dozen specialists for this country would become a good framework for the wider development of Ukraine's foreign economic cooperation with Nigeria.’
