He announced plans to expand and upgrade the University Clinic to a fully-fledged hospital capable of providing world-class health care services to the students and the public, and called on the Indian government to help in this direction.

“We would also appreciate if you could assist our clinic with medical and pharmaceutical equipment and products to better serve our increasing number of students, staff and the surrounding communities”, the Pro-VC added.

The High Commissioner gave the assurance that he would facilitate the process of strengthening institutional linkages between STU and other institutions of higher learning in India.
