Hadjar, noting that Malaysia possessed "quality and approval instance" in the sector of High Education, announced that Algeria's ambitions were to create an identical instance so as to raise the level of teaching in this country.

Indeed, Algerian experts and rectors would visit Malaysia to learn from this experience, he said, adding that conventions and co-operation agreements would be signed between universities of both countries.
