Hanyang University Institute for Euro-African Studies recently signed an MOU, the first among domestic universities, with government institutions and universities in Tanzania and Morocco. Hanyang University will support the training of experts in Africa and advancement of Korean SMEs.
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.
The two-way agreement with Tanzania and Moroccan agencies and universities signifies the expansion of their foundations for training regional experts on Africa and opens the way into the African market for small-to-medium Korean enterprises as well as academic exchanges.
Kim Sung-soo, a professor in the Department of Political Science and International Studies, said on December 22, "The agreement has an economic significance in addition to academic significance." He added, “The entry of Korean SMEs to Africa will also greatly help Korea's economy. "
