RIYADH: Saudi Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion Ahmed bin Mo­hammed Al-Issa signed a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment with Swedish Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and Re­search He­lene Hell­mark Knutsson dur­ing Al-Issa’s of­fi­cial visit to Swe­den.

The agree­ment in­cludes 16 ar­ti­cles to en­hance ed­u­ca­tional co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries, es­pe­cially in the field of vis­its be­tween ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cials, re­searchers and staff mem­bers.

The two min­is­ters dis­cussed as­pects to fa­cil­i­tate co­op­er­a­tion be­tween uni­ver­si­ties in both coun­tries. They also agreed to in­crease the num­ber of Saudi schol­ar­ships to Swedish uni­ver­si­ties.

The meet­ing was at­tended by Salem Al-Ma­lik, con­sul­tant and gen­eral su­per­vi­sor for in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion at the Saudi Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Saudi Am­bas­sador to Swe­den Ab­dul Aziz Al-Zaid, and the Swedish am­bas­sador to the King­dom.

Dur­ing his visit to Swe­den, Al-Issa held meet­ings with chan­cel­lors of four Swedish uni­ver­si­ties in the pres­ence of a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Swedish Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and Re­search and the chair­man of the Swedish Re­search Or­ga­ni­za­tion.
