On March 4, 2019, an MOU renewal ceremony for the improvement of human resources was held with the Government of South Sulawesi Province, Hasanuddin University, both Indonesia, and Ehime University.
The delegation of 11 representatives, led by Mr. Nurdin Abdullah, Governor of South Sulawesi Province, and Prof. Dwia Aries Tina Pulubuhu, Rector of Hasanuddin University, attended the signing ceremony. At the ceremony, Governor Nurdin emphasized that this MOU renewal is a significant step in going forward with the joint projects between South Sulawesi and Ehime.
After the ceremony, there was discussion on how to further strengthen the relationship of these three entities. One example; last year, after the earthquake in central Sulawesi in September, a joint survey was carried out on disaster mitigation with regional, academic and industrial collaboration.
On the following day, Indonesian students studying at Ehime University gathered to welcome the delegation. They seemed to be highly motivated by Rector Dwia’s direct message to keep working toward their global career in the future.
