The Institute signed an MOU with major economic ministries, including Tanzania Trade Development Agency, Tourism and Investment Office, University of Dar es Salaam, and Ardhi University, on May 13th. In particular, the Tourism Authority of Tanzania has decided to appoint Hanyang University Institute for Euro-African Studies as the Korean Goodwill Ambassador to Tanzania.
Prior to this, the Institute sought to cooperate with the Ministry of Urban Policy and Development in Morocco last December and signed a MOU with Mohamed V. University of Rabat the capital of Morocco. After the agreement, the Institute joined Nanjing University, China and Meiji University, Japan to co-host the Asia-Africa Cooperation International Conference.
