Indian High Commissioner pays working visit to Sunyani Technical University

Sugandh Rajaram, the Indian High Commissioner to Ghana, paid a working visit to the Sunyani Technical University (STU) as part of his routine tour of the country’s many districts.

Prof. Justice Solomon Korantwi-Barimah, the University’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor, led a high-powered delegation to receive  the High Commissioner, which included Samuel Ankama Obour, the Registrar, Dr. Prince Menzo, the Director of Finance, and other management members.

The visit was aimed at strengthening existing collaborations between STU and Indian universities, particularly in the areas of information and communication technology (ICT), electrical and electronic engineering, medical and pharmaceutical systems and services, as well as building the capacity of STU staff.

STU and Sugandh Rajaram were also able to discuss other potential areas of partnership in the future.

Prof. Korantwi-Barimah, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, welcomed the Indian High Commissioner to Ghana and his entourage and advocated for a significant partnership between STU and Indian Institutes of Technology and other engineering institutions in the fields of staff scholarships and student exchange programs.

He announced intentions to develop and enhance the University Clinic into a full-fledged hospital capable of providing world-class health care to the public, and he requested assistance from the Indian government in this respect, particularly in the training of critical medical and paramedical personnel.

“We’d also appreciate it if you could provide medical and pharmaceutical equipment and supplies to our clinic so that we may better serve our growing number of students, employees, and the neighboring communities,” the Pro-VC stated.

In his response, the High Commissioner, Sugandh Rajaram, stated that he will assist in the process of building institutional links between STU and other Indian institutions of higher learning.

He also stated that he will assist in the exploration of new areas of cooperation, such as joint research and staff capacity building.

The High Commissioner presented some various volumes to the University’s main library as part of the visit, a gesture for which the STU Pro VC and his team expressed their gratitude and a sign of many good things to come in their future cooperation.
