The Ethiopian Institute of Textile and Fashion Technology-EiTEX signed MoU with Donghua University of China. The University and the institute have been discussing on working collaboratively for quite some time. Consequently, the University invited the EiTEX delegates to visit the facilities and possible areas to work with in Donghua University, and sign the memorandum of Understanding to work collaboratively.
The delegates of EiTEX had four days of discussions on the main activities that the two institutions can work out together, and three days of visiting two campuses (Donghua University Old Campus which is established in 1951 and Songjiang Campus) in Shanghai.
During the discussions with different colleges and schools representatives, staff/student exchange, research and project work were considered to be addressed through the collaboration. In addition to the MoU signed by the two institutions, the positive feedback obtained from the discussions and the commitment to realize the visions of the two institutions has contributed to the clarity of the planned activities ahead.
