New Zealand hopes to attract Saudi students
As reported by Arab News, Steven Joyce, New Zealand’s Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment Minister, will arrive in Riyadh today to hold conferences with senior Saudi officials, as well as participate in the International Exhibition and Conference on Higher Education.
