Ang, The Manila Times chairman emeritus and president of The Manila Times College of Subic (TMTCS), and Dr. Honey Tolentino, TMTCS vice president for academic affairs, to carry out “internationalization” initiatives of the college.
The meeting with Dr. Larry Rosia, president and chief executive officer of Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and Dr. Has Malik, the school’s vice president for academic affairs, was held at the Hilton Hotel in Newport, Pasay City.
“During the meeting, the two institutions addressed the possibility of scholarly collaboration,” a statement from The Manila Times College of Subic on Friday said.
“This is part of TMTCS’ internationalization initiatives, which aim to bring global education to [schools overseas],” the statement added.
Angel Cachuela, Canadian Embassy trade commissioner, joined the meeting.
The Saskatchewan Polytechnic has opened an office in Manila in order to help strengthen ties between the Philippines and the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.
It had also signed a memorandum of understanding with Iloilo-based Central Philippines University.
