Portuguese request

PORTUGAL IS negotiating with the Jadavpur University to introduce Portuguese language course there aiming to meet the manpower demand for its local BPO sector.

"We have urged the university to open a department under the Department of Humanities. With Portuguese language skills, students can get highly paid jobs compared to English. We are primarily looking supply for the BPO sector," Portuguese Ambassador Joaquim Ferreira Marques said in Kolkata last week on the sidelines of an interactive session with CII.
