(Ecofin Agency) - The Tunisian minister of education, Mohammed Hamdi, signed yesterday with Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem, the minister of communication technologies and digital transformation, an MoU to deploy high-speed connectivity in schools across the country.
The deal, which also includes the rehabilitation of the educational network, aims to meet the Ministry of Education’s vision to digitalize and develop its working methods to improve access to knowledge for young people.
Through digital technology, the Ministry wants to give the different regions and their educational institutions the maximum opportunity to access quality educational content.
Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem stressed that the signing of this Memorandum of Understanding is timely, given the development of training and distance learning platforms that offer new opportunities for access to more knowledge.
This partnership between the two ministries is also part of the “Digital Tunisia” strategic plan, whose objective is to achieve social integration and limit the digital divide through the popularization of access to broadband digital services.
