"We will sign documents for the implementation of the Papuan teachers teaching program in PNG," Head of the Border and International Cooperation Board of Papua Suzana D Wanggai said here Wednesday.
She added that the international cooperation document, named the Implementation of the Regulation on Education Cooperation between Sundown Province (PNG) and Papua Province (Indonesia), had been completed and sent to PNG.
"The document is ready to be signed by the head of the education office of Papua province and the education office of Sundown province, PNG. We are now discussing the right time for the signing of the international agreement," Wanggai explained.
According to her, the education cooperation program was suggested by the administration of Sundown province that is interested in the education system at vocational schools in Jayapura, Papua.
"Schools in Sundown lack teachers. They visited vocational schools in Jayapura several times and expressed interest in the education system here. They want our teachers to teach them in their schools," Wanggai noted.
Salary and accommodation for Indonesian teachers will be provided by the administration of Sundown province.(*)
