25 September 2014
Russia’s Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) is set to open Russian language learning centers on the islands of Guam and Fiji, the University’s President Sergei Ivanets said Thursday at the Third APEC Conference on Cooperation in Higher Education.
“The expansion of scientific, research and educational cooperation remains a priority for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and internationalization plays a key role in this cooperation,” said Ivanets. “In the framework of such cooperation, our university is set to open Russian language learning centers for the local populations of Guam and Fiji. Both sides have expressed an interest and we are currently in negotiations with the local authorities. We expect to sign the necessary agreements this year.”
