Keeping Education in the forefront for establishing better ties among the two nations, India and Australia has recently agreed on a joint financial commitment and signed a Memorandum of Understanding. Australia is expected to spend up to AUS $1 million under this understanding and this would help strengthening existing partnership between the two countries in the field of education and research.
The memorandum of Understanding would further strengthen the ties in technical and professional education, school, vocational education and training in the countries. The agreement was signed between the Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani and Australian Minister for Education and Training Christopher Pyne. The understanding is expected to open up new avenues of innovative areas of research, development and cooperation between the two countries. The approval for the MoU came from Union Cabinet last week. The inking ceremony saw the education minsters of the two countries discussing over matters of interests in the field of education.
