VICTORIA – More students in SEYCHELLES can now apply to study in MALAYSIA following the renewal of an agreement between the TWO countries.
SBC News says the accord has been signed by KAMINAL MURRUNDI from the Winning Magnitude Agency of MALAYSIA and the SEYCHELLES Human Resource Development Principal Secretary LINDA BARRALLON as well as Acting CEO NADIA LAURICOURT.
Ms LAURICOURT says the agreement confirms the strong collaboration existing between SEYCHELLES Human Resource Development Agency and the Winning Magnitude Agency of MALAYSIA.
She says she is confident the implementing terms outlined in the deal will serve to improve existing working relationships to ensure it is a long lasting and fruitful one.
The SEYCHELLES national broadcaster says about 100 SEYCHELLOIS students are undertaking studies in different universities across MALAYSIA.
In another development, State House has put up a display of gifts that President DANNY FAURE has been receiving from other heads of state, ambassadors, as well as from other foreign and local dignitaries.
The exhibition, aimed to commemorate his FIRST year in office, also features videos and pictures of President FAURE at work in the communities, visiting families and places of work.
The Secretary of State for Cabinet Affairs, MOHAMED AFIF, has launched the program, saying it is a symbol of transparency in action, showing the people the gifts the Head of State has received on their behalf.
He says President FAURE believes strongly in keeping citizens well informed about the work the government does, while Cabinet decisions are communicated regularly through the media.
Mr AFIF also says government ministries make statements and answer questions in the National Assembly; and the President and his ministers hold regular press conferences.
He says the State has introduced more than 50 items of legislation since 16 OCTOBER 2016, including amendments to the Constitution, bills on the protection of human rights, access to information, employment, combating drug abuse, and on institutions of democracy.
The national broadcaster says different experts and commentators have described the event as historic, since it is the FIRST time in history for SEYCHELLES to organise an exhibition of official gifts to the President./Sabanews/cam
