Managing a collaboration agreement in different areas of knowledge and possibilities for exchange were the topics addressed by University of Talca President, Alvaro Rojas, during the work meeting held with Houdaifa Ameziane, President of the Abdelmalek Essaâdi University (UAE), located in the north of Tetouan, Morocco.

A framework cooperation agreement will be signed shortly to formalize this important partnership", stressed the people from the Moroccan Academic Institution, who also called UTalca "one of the main referents for higher education in Latin America."
