The theme for the event is, ‘Engaging Policy Makers, Private sectors and Institutions of Higher Learning to advance Africa’s Response to Agricultural and Higher Education Transformation and Relevance’.
The Ministry said one of the key papers to be presented will be the status of higher education and scientific research in Namibia.
“This will help provide the policy makers and private sector the opportunity to converge around what the higher education and research institutions in Namibia are doing and the support needed to strengthen higher education and research institutions for the development of Namibia human capital,” they added.
The event will be held in collaboration with the Regional Universities Forum (RUFORUM) Secretariat and the University of Namibia.
