This is a concern for the Government of Papua Mountain Province, one of which is the leading and priority sector, namely the education sector in building Human Resources (HR).

Through this MoU the basis of Education, Research and Service can then develop into other and important aspects for the community, especially young people who want to develop and learn, collaboration with regional universities will continue as a manifestation of the mission of the Papua Mountain Province Government in increasing Human Resources (HR) and extensive development.

Cenderawasih University currently has nine faculties with 85 study programs and postgraduate programs.

With this cooperation, it is hoped that there will be a significant increase in scientific development, Human Resources and sustainable development in the Papua Mountain Province.
