The department of Hospitality and Tourism Management of BINUS UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL (HTM-BI) and the embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, through their Cultural Attaché, signed a memorandum of understanding on the cooperation of education, art and culture on 23 January 2015.
Yuliana, the Head of Program of the school of HTM and Hujjatullah Ibrahimian, the Cultural Counselor Embassy of Iran, agreed on efforts to develop education and tourism.
“BINUS is one of the main universities in Indonesia. With a large number of students and a great reputation, BINUS is a famous university and the best for us,” Hujjatullah said. Iran plans to run some programs in order to introduce their culture and also to learn Indonesian culture.
Hujjatullah said that Indonesia has so much cultural richness, but many Iranians are unaware of this. Therefore, Iran would like to cooperate with an Indonesian educational institution to find out more. “Tourist attractions in Indonesia are myriad and beautiful. The cuisine is wonderful. But unfortunately many Iranians do not really know about these. We need to have further program development,” Hujjatullah added.
With a 7000-year-old civilization, Iran has richness in its culture. This is why one of the agreed programs of cooperation is having an ‘Iranian Day’ at BINUS.
BINUS also welcomed this cooperation as an opportunity for the Department of HTM BI to develop, either the educational programs or the students. “This cooperation will give benefits to us, especially to the students,” Yuliana said. (RAW)
