Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

In light of the visit by top Aus­tralian aca­demics to Kuwait, Am­bas­sador Na­jeb Al-Bader said yes­ter­day that his coun­try and Aus­tralia were ea­ger to boost co­op­er­a­tion within the ed­u­ca­tional and aca­demic do­mains. Am­bas­sador Bader in­di­cated that Chan­cel­lor of the Aus­tralian Na­tional Univer­sity (ANU) Pro­fes­sor Gareth Evans, ac­com­pa­nied by Di­rec­tor of the Cen­ter for Arab and Is­lamic Stud­ies and Pro­fes­sor of Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence at the ANU Amin Saikal, are in Kuwait to dis­cuss co­op­er­a­tion with lo­cal of­fi­cials and aca­demics.

Chan­cel­lor Evans will also de­liver a lec­ture fo­cus­ing on prob­lems and crises in the twenty first cen­tury, said the Am­bas­sador who added that the del­e­ga­tion would de­part on Septem­ber 18. The ANU was es­tab­lished in 1946 in the cap­i­tal Can­berra. It is con­sid­ered as one of the pres­ti­gious uni­ver­si­ties in Aus­tralia and the only aca­demic fa­cil­ity cre­ated by the coun­try’s par­lia­ment. — KUNA
