Jordan, Tunisia discuss increasing higher-degree seekers' exchange.
Amman, Jan. 16 (Petra)- Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Adel Tweisi, on Tuesday discussed with Tunisian ambassador here, Khaled Suhaili, possibility to increase exchange of higher-degree seekers and to axe period necessary for Jordanians' admission to the north African nation's higher educational institutions. The two sides also mulled ways to foster prospects of higher education cooperation and to rejuvenate a relevant memo of understanding signed in 2016. During the meeting, Tweisi tabled an invitation to his Tunisian counterpart to visit Amman to revive the said MoU. Moreover, he lauded the Tunisian initiative to allocate 1 percent of the GDP for scientific research purposes. Suhaili, for his part, commended bilateral ties as "historic", particularly in the wake of the recent Tunisian leader's visit to Amman, and holds out hope degree-seekers' exchange will soar. 150 Jordanians study in Tunisia and 63 Tunisians pursue their degrees here. //Petra// AG 16/1/2018 - 02:44:14 PM
