Eritrea and neighbouring Sudan have signed a framework agreement on working together on strengthening educational links and related fields, according to Eritrean state media. The Eritrean Ministry of Education and the Sudanese Ministry of Higher Studies and Research signed the agreement in the Eritrean capital, Asmara, last week.
The new partnership, according to Shabait, will allow both sides to extend their future collaboration in higher education and to explore possible areas of joint cooperation in other related educational fields.
The contents of the agreement pertain to developing the capacity of higher education institutions and establishing ties between higher education institutions in both countries. The two sides will further undertake various joint scientific research projects, exchanging experience regarding the entire education system, policy and human resource development.
