Education at the heart of the New Colombo Plan

Wednesday 11 December 2013


The Minister for Education, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP welcomed the launch of the New Colombo Plan which is an integral part of the Government’s policy to foster deeper relationships and understanding with regional neighbours.

“At its heart, the New Colombo Plan is an education initiative that allows the building of relationships through the experience of attending university in a different country,” Mr Pyne said.

The Department of Education is working closely with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to deliver the scholarships and student mobility grants and loans which are at the heart of the New Colombo Plan.
