During the 9 days of the mission, which was carried out in the cities of Windhoek, Gaborone and Palapye, the delegates held several meetings in the main Namibian and Botswanan universities to get to know and strengthen the relationship with the main High Education agents in both countries. The visited universities are: University of Namibia (UNAM) and Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) in Namibia, and Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN), Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST), University of Botswana (BU), and Botswana Accountancy College (BAC) in Botswana.
