Tanzania, Hungary agree to collaborate in education sector

President Samia Suluhu Hassan and her Hungarian counterpart Katalin Novak witnessed the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which aims at bolstering education collaboration between the two countries.

The MoU was signed by Minister for Education, Science, and Technology, Professor Adolf Mkenda and Hungarian State Secretary Mr Tristan Azbej at the State House in Dar es Salaam Tuesday to pave a way for an exchange programme between Tanzanian and Hungarian students.

Speaking at the State House President Samia said that Hungary has been an important partner to Tanzania particularly in higher learning education.

“Together we have been able to advance our cooperation through this stipendium Hungarian program ‘hungaricum program’. This newly signed agreement is coming with a new approach in which students from Hungary will as well benefit from the scholarships coming to Tanzania and study in our universities,” she said.

“For this year, we are starting with five students from Hungary while Hungary will be taking about 30 students from Tanzania and the number will keep on increasing”.

On her part, President Katalin Novak said the opportunity that Hungarian and Tanzanian young people get from the exchange programme is not only to study and learn from other countries but also to know the people, language and be successful in their respective countries.
