Cyprus and Poland on Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding in the fields of science, education, culture and sports. The cooperation agreement was signed in a ceremony at the presidential palace by Education Minister Prodromos Prodromou and Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Piotr Wawrzyk, as part of an official visit by the Polish President to Cyprus .
A press release from the Ministry of Education said the cooperation agreement coincides with the 60 anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and confirms the close bilateral ties of friendship and cooperation.
The Memorandum of Understanding strengthens bilateral cooperation in the fields of education, culture, sports and youth. The final text of the agreement was ratified in June at a meeting of the Cyprus-Poland Joint Committee scheduled for this purpose. Both sides can now promote the exchange of information, good practices, teaching materials and specialists in areas such as digital and environmental education and adult learning.
Cooperation can also be established through EU programs such as Erasmus +, eTwinning, the European Solidarity Corps and international forums such as the UN Finance Committee and UNESCO.
