Academic support … The Indian High Commission in Windhoek held a ceremony on Thursday to mark Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) Day, in the presence of ITEC alumni, many of whom commented favourably on their experiences in India and the value of training under the ITEC programme. The occasion, which was attended by more than 100 people, brought together ITEC alumni who went to India for training in various fields. Established in 1964, the ITEC programme is an expression of India’s solidarity with fellow developing countries and covers 158 countries across Asia, Africa, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as several Pacific and Caribbean nations. Since its inception, the programme has spent over US$2 billion and benefited thousands of students and professionals from around the globe. Annual expenditure on the programme has averaged US$100 million per annum in recent years.
