Bahrain developing education
Bahrain is seeking India's contributions in developing the country's technical education, Crown Prince Shaikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa has said.
Bahrain Crown Prince made the comments as he received at his court Indian Ambassador Balakrishna Shetty and BITIC director Professor T R Ranganath.
He hailed the growing relations and mutual co-operation between India and Bahrain in many areas including education.
While praising the reputation of the 51-year-old Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi, India, he said he was looking forward to seeing the institute become one of the best internationally.
Half of the 284 students enrolled at BITIC are Bahrainis.
"In Bahrain, we had only 17 Bahrainis and it has now grown to 142," said Prof Ranganath.
BITIC, which is located in Janabiya, is a joint venture between Mohammed Jalal & Sons and the Birla Institute of Technology (BIT) in Ranchi, India.
