He referred to the possibility of exchanging teachers, students, technical and sport teams between the two countries and securing Arabic language teachers to support teaching in the United Arab Emirates and exchange experiences in the field of information technology.
In turn, the UAE Minister of Education, Dr. Al Falasi, expressed the desire to strengthen cooperation relations with Syria, hoping to open new horizons for cooperation and exchange of teachers and teachers who teach in Emirati schools.
Minister Al Falasi talked about the learning resources used by teachers and students in the UAE, the educational platforms project established by the UAE, and the My School project, which enriches the educational process.
The Emirati Miniser higlighted the importance of studying the idea of establishing a Syrian-Emirati joint school and teaching the Arabic language and promoting its use and mastery in light of globalization to preserve the nation’s existence and its language.
