KATHMANDU, Feb 5: Minister for Education, Science and Technology Shishir Khanal has said that Nepal can be developed into an international educational center.

Speaking at the educational discussion held by the Higher Institutions and Secondary Schools' Association Nepal (HISSAN) and honoring the Minister of Education on Sunday, he said that instead of sending Nepali students abroad for higher education, policies should be made to bring in students from abroad to Nepal.

"Let us make Nepal a country where we can bring in the same number of students as we send abroad," he said.

He said that educational quality should be enhanced at the primary and basic schools. He said that Nepal deserves to be an educational hub based on its geographical structure, and there is a need to improve the quality of the education system accordingly.

Khanal said, “How can we improve our school education? There is a huge problem in the quality from the primary schools to the basic school level, but by taking advantage of the geographical location of Nepal, it can become an international education hub. With the vision of building that hub, it is necessary to create an environment that can bring in foreign students instead of sending students abroad.”
