India willing to partner with UAE to make it global educational hub: Indian diplomat
The two-day conclave, titled 'Schools for the Future', was organised by Kyra Global
India will be happy to be a partner with the UAE in its efforts to make the Emirates a global educational hub besides being a financial hub, an Indian diplomat here has said.
Tadu Mamu, Consul (Press Information, Culture and Labour) of the Indian Embassy, who was the chief guest at a global education conclave here, said that the pandemic had unleashed the potential of online learning in a big way that was attracting students.
She said there was a need to bring a balance between the physical mode of learning with edu-tech.
She said the UAE leadership is striving to make the Emirates a global educational hub besides being a financial hub.
She also said that India and the UAE share exceptionally close relations across the cultural and political sectors and the ties had strengthened under the leadership of the two nations.
The two-day conclave, titled 'Schools for the Future', was organised by Kyra Global, a company founded in Dubai by veteran Indian publisher KPR Nair, in partnership with The American University in the Emirates (AUE), one of Dubai's premier universities.
It was attended by around 250 participants in physical mode and thousands of others from across the world virtually to brainstorm on potential solutions to redesign and build schools for the future.
