TWO government officials will study in Korea under the Korea International Co-operation Agency's Master Degree Program begining next month.

The beneficiaries are Amelia Marama Nairoba, a senior women's interest officer from the Ministry of Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation, and Vueti Kosoniu May, a secondary school teacher from the Ministry of Education.

Ms Nairoba will participate in the Master's Degree program in International Studies (Women and Development) at Ewha Women's University in Seoul.

Last year, Keleni Tikomaisuva, acting principal labour officer of the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment studied under a similar program.

Mr May will pursue a Master's Degree Program in International Development at the Graduate School of Korea University in Seoul along with 20 participants from 16 countries.

The expenses borne by the host government will cover tuition fees, a round-trip air ticket, accommodation and meals during their stay in Korea.
