Thank you to Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research, and Innovation David Houdeingar Ngarhimaden for welcoming Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. Jessica Davis Ba. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss opportunities and challenges for higher education in Chad. Recognizing the importance of partnerships and exchanges, we noted the importance of private sector engagement and skills training to prepare students for the workforce. We were also pleased to share with the Minister American opportunities and resources available to Chadians including the Fulbright Foreign Student Program, the Hubert H. Humphrey Program, the Mandela Washington Fellowship, and EducationUSA services. We look forward to continued collaboration!
