Deputy Prime Minister Professor Arthur Mutambara says the implementation of the public-private partnership in education is critical in the development of the countryâ€™s education sector.
Stakeholders in the education sector converged in the capital to discuss the implementation of the public-private partnership for a sustainable education sector.
Speaking to ZBC News on the sidelines of the symposium, Deputy Prime Minister Mutambara said the implementation of the public- private partnership is critical in improving the countryâ€™s education sector which is currently facing a number of challenges.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Dr Washington Mbizvo said the public-private partnerships are important in higher and tertiary education as they bring new programmes while generating funds through projects to be undertaken by students at various universities.
Various issues such as the perspectives on mobilising public-private partnerships in higher and tertiary education and the legal framework that supports the implementation of the model, came under the spotlight during the symposium.Â Â
