Monday 24 June 2013 | 14:00 CET | News
Samsung announced that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with the government of Ethiopia. This MOU is structured as a co-operative partnership to develop infrastructure through IT solutions. Samsung will provide "smart" platforms to enhance social welfare, education, health, security and e-government. Additionally, Samsung will establish a Samsung Engineering Academy in partnership with the Department of Education in Ethiopia to further drive skills development and transfer and create local technicians, with the possibility of job placement after graduation in Samsung brand stores and service centres. Samsung will appoint a Samsung executive to act as an Ethiopian National Technical University adviser, to assist the academy and ensure curriculum and development are mapped and executed accordingly. In addition, Ethiopian students will join Samsung's Young Leader 100 programme, where outstanding young people from Ethiopia will have the opportunity to go to Samsung's headquarters in Korea for six months where they will be trained as future leaders.
