The course was formally launched by IOI HQ Managing Director Antonella Vassallo and SECS Chairman Myrat Atajanov on the 4th March alongside Dr Iouri Oliounine, Director of the Training Programme, who further introduced the participants to the concepts and structure of the course.
19 participants from the countries surrounding the Caspian Sea (Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, IR Iran and Russia), and one participant from China attended the course.
