NEW DELHI: India and Australia signed a framework mechanism for mutual recognition of qualifications that aims to help and ease the mobility of students and professionals between the two countries. The agreement was signed at a bilateral meeting between union education minister, Dharmendra Pradhan and his Australian counterpart, Jason Clare.
Nearly 11 institutional-level agreements were exchanged between India and Australia's university sectors with the goal to promote research and academic collaborations between the two countries in fields ranging from bio-innovation to law to industry solutions. The Australian government will also be contributing 1.89 million dollars to run agricultural skill development programmes in India.
"Australia and India are aligned to making the knowledge pillar a key aspect of the bilateral relationship. Both the countries agreed to create new frameworks of partnership to take our bilateral relations to new heights," Dharmendra Pradhan said at a press conference.
Pradhan further emphasised that such developments will create more opportunities for two-way mobility of students and professionals for education and employment. Union education minister also informed that the scope of Australia India Education Council (AIEC) has been widened to also include cooperation in skill development.
