Dr. Idris Hadi Salih, Head of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Mehmet Özdemir, Academic Vice president and Dr. Wasfi Kahwachi, Admin and Fin. Vice president of Tishk International University visited Mr. Katsumi, Consulate General of Japan in Erbil, Iraq on March 31 2019.
In the meeting, it was planned to initiate a new collaboration between Tishk and several Japan universities to promote scientific and education level by holding shared seminars, international conferences, student and staff exchange programs and information exchange.
Mr. Katsumi promised to help Tishk students to get the opportunities and scholarships to attain Master’s degrees at various universities in Japan. He also suggested the creation of exchange programs that would raise knowledge and provide research data for both parties. It is hoped that this might bring about a free exchange of information while creating new opportunities for academic, cultural and scientific exchanges.
Dr. Hadi mentioned several activities such as conferences, workshops, and social activities that he hoped would interest Japans students and institutions. Mr. Katsumi showed a willingness to participate in these activities both in the current academic season and well into the future.
At the end Dr. Hadi presented a commemorative plaque of appreciation to Mr. Katsumi to thank him for his gracious hospitality.
