The message reads, in part:
“Welcome to the finals of the ninth National Championship for Young Professionals, WorldSkills Russia 2021, which has brought together in Ufa college and university students from various Russian regions. Many other competitors and experts from Asian-Pacific and CIS countries will also take part in the championship remotely. Such admirable finalists and an impressive number of trade skills show that vocational specialties are gaining prestige in the world, and that the ideals and values of the WorldSkills international movement are growing stronger and getting more popular.
I am confident that during an intense competition beginner specialists can fully demonstrate their skills and outstanding creative potential and prove that they can tackle difficult professional tasks with skill and speed. And, of course, such forums provide a great opportunity for self-improvement, exchange of experience and knowledge, and friendly conversation.
I send special, warm words of appreciation to your mentors, coaches and those who help you achieve success and be the best in your job.”
