This bilateral educational cooperation agreement, as explained by Amb. Simon Nabukwesi, the Principal Secretary, University Education and Research, will promote cooperation between the two countries in the areas of science, research and innovation.
He further noted that these scholarships will address Kenya’s big four agenda namely, Affordable Housing, Universal Health Care, Manufacturing and Food Security by providing skilled personnel.
‘’We are committed to working better and more closely, towards common goals, the pursuit of holistic education, the availability of international opportunities and research programs will ensure graduates will become successful individuals in their selected careers.
We strongly hope our coming together is not for a mere signing of an agreement but rather a step towards shaping the future world. ’’ Added the PS.
