China and Myanmar have agreed to strengthen their cooperation in the educational field and ICT talent development in particular with a new MoU signed by Chinese colossus Huawei and Myanmar’s Rectors’ Committee under the supervision of the Ministry of Education.
The cooperation agreement will establish an ICT diploma course system, sponsor “Seeds for the Future” program, establish the Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy, provide ICT Talent Scholarship to outstanding university students, organize the Youth Open Day at Huawei Customer Solution Innovation and Integration Center as well as assist in ICT related scientific research in Myanmar.
“We appreciate and thank Huawei for the efforts and contributions to Myanmar ICT development. Establishing collaborative partnerships both national and internationally is one of the main approaches which support the development of regional universities,” Dr. Myo Kywe, chairman of National Education Policy Commission said.
CEO of Huawei Myanmar Zhang Liman encouraged cooperation and called upon other organizations to promote Myanmar’s human resources, economic and social development.
The MoU is an elevated version of the previous one which was signed in 2014 and over 1,500 ICT talents have been trained under the program in the past four years.
