Greetings to 3rd Abilympics National Professional Skills Competition for people with disabilities

December 1, 2017

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to participants and guests of the 3rd Abilympics National Professional Skills Competition for people with disabilities.

The message reads, in part:

“The competition today has brought together the most highly qualified professionals, the best of the best, those who won regional competitions and demonstrated their skills, knowledge and expertise, who are ready to fight for the prizes of the national competition. And of course, the guests at this event include representatives of the government, businesses, NGOs and volunteer organisations.

In the past years, Abilympics has won public recognition and become a prestigious platform for solving a wide range of issues related to the careers of people with disabilities and their motivation for further professional and personal growth, as well as issues related to increasing their employability.

During the championship and the business programme, you will have an opportunity to share useful experience, promote your inclusive technology and rehabilitation ideas that will contribute to comprehensive integration of the disabled in society and successful completion of social and creative projects.

It is also important of course that the national championship will become a successful career start for the participants and help them establish themselves in their chosen occupation.”
