Korea, Oman sign MOU on education cooperation
The education ministers of Korea and Oman on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on expanding bilateral cooperation in education, Seoul's Ministry of Education, Science and Technology said.
The MOU signed in Seoul between Lee Ju-ho from Korea and Madiha Bint Ahmed Al Shibaniyah calls for closer cooperation in fields such as the fostering of teachers, vocational training, education curriculum and evaluations, and e-learning, according to the ministry.
At the request of Oman, Korea agreed to conduct training for Omani teachers here in the second half of next year.
Minister Shibaniyah asked Korea to hand down its expertise and experience in education and help develop Oman's project to foster professional teachers.
Korea and Oman established diplomatic ties in March 1974. (Yonhap)
