Warri Kingdom Partners With Finland, Signs MOU In Education, Digital Transformation.

Warri Kingdom in Delta State and Tampere City of Finland have officially forged a strategic partnership aimed at advancing key aspects of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This collaboration aligns seamlessly with the initiatives of both Delta State and the Federal Government to foster privately-led efforts in achieving the SDGs.

The partnership reached its pinnacle on a significant Friday in Tampere, Finland, with the formal signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, CFR, and His Excellency, Ilkka Sasi, Deputy Mayor of the City of Tampere.

Representing Ogiame Atuwatse III, the Queen Consort of Warri Kingdom, Olori Atuwatse III, appended her signature to the MOU. This landmark agreement solidifies the commitment of both parties to enhance cooperation, particularly in the realm of education.

The MOU outlines their shared objectives, which include fostering educational exchanges, knowledge transfer, capacity building, and RDI activities. Furthermore, it emphasizes the promotion of equitable and mutually beneficial relationships.

Additionally, the agreement underscores the encouragement of collaboration between various public and private sector stakeholders from each region, with a focus on digital transformation, shared prosperity, regional development, all in line with the principles of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Both parties have agreed to independently fund the initiatives outlined in the MOU, unless alternative financial mechanisms are mutually agreed upon for specific purposes.

The MOU, valid for three years, can be renewed as part of the outcome of His Royal Majesty’s visit to Finland in July 2023.
