NIGER WANTS TO LEARN FROM ALGERIA’S EXPERIENCE IN EDUCATION, RESEARCH

ALGIER,S -- Niger's Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Mohamed Ben Ammar, says his country wants to learn from Algeria's pioneering experience in higher education and scientific research.

"Algeria has made notable progress in higher education and scientific research which requires strengthening and intensifying the co-operation (between the two countries) in this field to enable Niger to benefit from Algeria's experiences to improve the abilities of Niger's universities," he said after meeting Algerian Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Tahar Hadjar here Thursday.

Ben Ammar also emphasized Algeria's support to Niger's students pursuing their higher education in Algeria who benefit from accommodation provided by the Algerian government.

He also called for the strengthening of scientific exchanges between the two countries, particularly in the field of research and training.

Hadjar said his meeting with Ben Ammar had discussed co-operation between the two countries in the field of higher education and scientific research and examined ways likely to strengthen and intensify their co-operation.

Hadjar will soon ink with his Nigerien counterpart a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to define the fields of scientific co-operation, notably concerning the support by the Algerian universities to Niger's specialized and newly created universities.

In this regard, he stressed the need to increase exchanges of visits between the Universities' chief education officers and teachers and to strengthen the co-operation between the two countries.
