Thailand’s Education Minister, Mr. Adisai Bodharamik, has led a team of 160 university officials to a three-day-exhibition-cum-seminar in Myanmar’s capital city of Rangoon to promote Thai college education to the neighbouring country.
The seminar is being held on 24-27 September under a joint cooperation between the two countries aimed to forge for closer bilateral ties in education, said the Thai education minister.
At least 31 Thai universities, both private and state-run colleges, are taking part in the seminar.
Thailand has aimed to become a regional educational hub, as it has viewed education as another source of income to promote the country’s economic growth.
It has set to attract more foreign students from neighbouring countries to attend its colleges.
