A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Ministry of Science, Technology, Research, Skills Development and Vocational Training and Kandyan Heritage and the Chinese Academy of Science last week at the Ministry office at Sethsiripaya. Minister Dr. SarathAmunugama signed the MOU on behalf of the Ministry while the Vice Chairman of the Chinese Academy of Science signed on behalf of the Chinese institution.

The objective of the MOU is to establish and expand scientific and technological research cooperation between the two parties. The ministry plans to cooperate with the Chinese academy through bilateral symposia, exchange of scientists, joint research, the operation of education centers and cooperative projects, as well as technology transfer programs, exchange of information and publications. 

During the meeting held after the signing of the MOU it was specifically agreed to do a feasibility study on receiving earth observation data from Chinese counterpart agencies and to exchange experts and scientists on selected areas.
