‘Visit from the World Bank’


I met with a delegation from the World Bank, Ms. H.Bridi, Country Director for Mauritius, Comoros, Madagascar and Seychelles, Dr. S. Bashir, Sector Manager Education for the Africa region and others. The aim of the visit was to discuss the country’s reform in the tertiary education and how they could support the reform agenda of my ministry
