India, Australia agree to step up education cooperation

India and Australia have decided to step up institution partnership, collaboration in school policy, skill development and vocational education at a bilateral meeting held on Saturday. Three MoUs between top educational institutions of the two countries were also signed during the visit of the Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar to Australia.

Javadekar said the education dialogue with Australia “reaffirmed the commitment” made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Turnbull Malcolm in April 2017 “to strengthen the education, training and research relationship” between the two nations.
