Belarus headhunting for nuclear plant operators


Belarus is selecting
experienced operators of nuclear power plants, hoping to hire them to work at
the future Belarusian plant, Interfax quotes Mikhail Mikhadzyuk, deputy energy
minister, as saying.

Interfax says Mikhadzyuk made
the statement in an interview with Belarus' state-controlled newspaper
Sovetskaya Belorussiya.


He says that selectors' prime
targets are experts who were trained in Belarus and currently work in the
nuclear industries of other countries. He adds that the government is soon
expected to come up with a nuclear industry personnel training program.
