Angola: Higher Education Has a Lot to Do - Minister

Luanda — Angola is still seeking higher education models as it is still hard to point out an exemplary institution in all respects.

This was said Friday in Luanda by the Higher Education minister, Adão do Nascimento.

The official was speaking at the opening of the two-day 7th Meeting of Cadres of the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the World (Tocoista) taking place with the theme "What higher Education do we want".

He said that a country of success is built with great and strong higher education institutions that can serve as a model in all domains of the national life and wished the Tocoista Church's project to result in a strong university Adão do Nascimento also spoke of the need for an education institution capable of transmitting knowhow to the community, so that a community in the vicinity of a medicine faculty masters knowledge of health.  to the minister, the university teaching staff must challenge the frontiers of ambitious knowledge in doing research.

The event is discussing such topics as the socio-political profile of the leader of the church, prophet Simão Gonçalves Toco, a reflection on the process of creation of the higher education under the Church, structuring axis and guidelines of the Government's nationalplan of training of cadres for the 2013-2017 period and other matters.
