Tadu Mamu, Consul (Press Information, Culture and Labour) of the Indian Embassy stated that India is willing to partner with the UAE to make it a global educational hub besides being a financial hub.
Speaking at a global education conclave in Dubai, where Mamu was the keynote speaker, she stated that India will be happy to assist large universities in establishing branches in Abu Dhabi and the UAE, according to a press release.
She went on to say that the pandemic had unleashed the potential of online learning and that there was a need to balance traditional learning with edtech.
Mamu also emphasised the close cultural and political ties that exist between India and the UAE. She also stated that the establishment of an IIT campus in Abu Dhabi, which was announced as part of the trade agreement in 2022, would strengthen bilateral cooperation.
Educators, edtech leaders, experts, and students from the Gulf Cooperation Council region and beyond attended the two-day “Schools for the Future” conclave. They discussed critical issues in education, with a particular emphasis on digital technology’s potential to aid learning.
