Barely 24 hours after the signing of the Sister-State agreement with the State of Maryland, Cross River may already have began to benefit from the relationship.
Yesterday, the state’s delegation made of commissioners of key ministries like Education, Health, Agriculture and ICT were given a tour of the John Hopkins Hospital, the Maryland University and Bowie State University.
During a tour of each of these institutions, there was information sharing on curriculum development, research, students and teachers exchange and extension services in agriculture.
The team also met with Maryland Tourism and Film, Baltimore Development Corporation, Morgan University, Maryland Historic Trust and Baltimore Heritage Program.
At the meeting, information was shared on how to restore and preserve historic monuments amongst others.
Meanwhile, Governor Imoke has returned home immediately after signing the Sister-State Agreement with the state of Maryland in the US.
According to one of the governor’s aide, “This is a very hectic period for His Excellency, he does not have the luxury of time to spend outside the country, that is why he left some of the members of his delegation behind to return home. The Leboku Festival is on Saturday and there are other very crucial events lined up for early next week for him so he had to make that early return.”
