On May 11, Vice-Chancellor Suliman et al. of the University of Khartoum in the Republic of Sudan paid a courtesy visit to President Teshima.
This visit was made to renew the academic exchange agreement concluded by Tottori University and the University of Khartoum in 2010.
Tottori University has thus far carried out close exchanges with the above university through the acceptance of exchange students and the conducting of joint studies. President Teshima offered words of appreciation as follows: “This agreement is beneficial for both our universities. Owing to this agreement, many researchers and students are able to come to Tottori University and two-way visits are made by prominent researchers and staff.” Thereafter, the renewal of the agreement took place.
Based on the renewal of the agreement, progress in joint studies with the Faculty of Agriculture and Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Khartoum is anticipated. Furthermore, plans to further joint studies through the “International Platform for Dryland Research and Education,” which was established in Tottori University university in January of this year, are underway.
After the signing of the agreement, President Teshima and Vice-chancellor Suliman shake hands.
