Taipei, April 11 (CNA) A tertiary education delegation from Indonesia visited Tunghai University in Taichung recently, as part of an effort to strengthen bilateral exchanges in higher education, the university said on Tuesday.

The delegation included Hari Purwanto, senior advisor to Indonesia's Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education, and Agus Indarjo, secretary-general of the Directorate General of Institution for Science, Technology and Higher Education under the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education, the university said.

During their visit to the university on April 8, the Indonesian officials were briefed by faculty on educational programs, initiatives for education innovation and the operations of the Indonesia Taiwan Education Center, it added.

The university runs the education center in Jakarta, which aims to promote higher educational exchanges between the two countries, including holding bilateral academic exchange visits and promoting Taiwan's higher education.

The Indonesian delegation expressed hope that their visit will help develop more opportunities for bilateral cooperation in the future.

Their visit to Taiwan came after a delegation from Tunghai University attended a Taiwan-Indonesia higher education forum held in Indonesia last year, the university said.
