Otumfuo Projects KNUST for Collaboration with University of Malta

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has projected the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in the quest to broker academic collaboration and cooperation with the University of Malta.

The Chancellor of what is widely considered one of the leading public universities in Ghana opted for a friendship between his school and the one sitting at Tal-Qroqq in Msida in Malta when the President of the island country, H. E George William Vella suggested exchange programmes with top universities in his country.

It is one of the avenues President Vella intends to enhance cooperation as as he considers educational investment crucial for the future.

“Besides, Malta is also fully committed to giving priority to people exchanges in the field of education. We would like to create further opportunities for Ghanaian citizens to study, specialise or upscale at higher education institutions in my country such as the University of Malta, Malta College of Arts Science and Technology the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies and the International Maritime Law Institute as well as the Institute of Tourism Studies.

“There is room for greater focus on capacity building, youth entrepreneurship and leadership, sustainable development and economic growth,” he told the King in his speech.

Otumfuo thus suggested collaboration between the KNUST and the University of Malta.

“I seek collaboration between our university here, the {Kwame Nkrumah} University of Science and Technology, and the University of Malta. We can exchange students, that is, exchange programmes to advance in education.”

The intention, he said, is to produce the needed human resources to develop both countries.

The President of Malta and his wife, Miriam Vella as well as other officials visited the Manhyia Palace as part of their three-day working visit to Ghana on March 9, 2024.

He is the second Maltese President to visit the country and the Manhyia Palace. The first visit was in 2017.
