The aim was to identify key ways of further deepening the partnership between the two institutions.
He met with the teaching staff of HTU, and discussed the strategic management of the two universities to benefit their communities, technical management and marketing strategies, IT systems and solutions, and the creative potentials and capacity building for the two universities, among other issues.
