​03/08/2017

Cardiff Met's Pro Vice Chancellor (International), Professor Mohamed Loutfi, was interviewed  in a Sri Lanka newspaper. Professor Loutfi spoke about the potential of Sri Lanka becoming a hub of education in South East Asia and how the country is in a position to build capacity in terms of quality and value in the education service. 

He touched on the benefits of an education hub in Sri Lanka with international partnerships in terms of modernising the national tertiary education sector, and building capacity in the local workforce to move towards a knowledge or a service based economy.

He highlighted the need to have a comprehensive country strategy to support this initiative, including a streamlined visa system, a regulatory framework and the quality assurance of inbound/outbound programmes including cooperation between the local and international quality assurance agencies.
