Somalia, Italy sign education scholarship Agreement

The signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Med-Or Foundation and the Federal Republic of Somalia was held on Tuesday.

The agreement has been signed by the Minister of the Foreign Affairs of the Somalia, H.E. Abdisaid Muse Ali and by the President of Med-Or Foundation Marco Minniti.

The event was held at the headquarters of the Foundation, in Rome, with the attendance of the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Luigi Di Maio and the Somali Minister of Education H.E. Abdullahi Abukar Haji. The President of Leonardo Luciano Carta, the Chief Executive Officer Alessandro Profumo, the General Manager Valerio Cioffi, and the General Manager of Med-Or Foundation Letizia Colucci also attended the ceremony.

The Memorandum focuses on areas in which the Foundation is actively engaged, including the promotion of the Italian language in Somalia, and cooperation on higher education through the provision of scholarships and bilateral training courses.

“Somalia is a strategic country in the complex balance of the Horn of Africa. Med-Or’s interest and commitment to this country are in line with Italy’s engagement in Somalia,” said Marco Minniti, President of Med-Or Foundation.

The Memorandum signed with the Republic of Somalia follows the projects and activities promoted with other African partners, such as Morocco and Niger, in 2021.
