THE Fijian Teachers Association and the Papua New Guinea Teachers Association will be signing an MOU to build a strong partnership between the two organisation in getting teachers and students to work and study in the two countries.

Fijian Teachers Association general secretary Maika Namudu confirmed they were working closely with the PNG Teachers Association and the PNG Education Department.

He said the signing of the MOU would be done soon.

"Once we sign the MOU, then we will be able to talk about taking teachers over to PNG or them coming to Fiji," Mr Namudu said.

Also, student exchanges will also be part of the agreement that we are going to sign."

He said an issue discussed by teachers during the conference was on the retirement age for all teachers that had been an issue for some time.
