Signing of agreement between Palmerston North and Jambi

The Palmerston North City Council hosted a delegation from the Province of Jambi in Indonesia this morning at 11.00am.

Representatives from Palmerston North include: Bruce Osborne International Director, UCOL; David Bovey, Rector and Lance Retemeyer, International Manager, Palmerston North Boys High School; Jane Horton, Acting Principal and Mary Cherian, Dean of International Students, Awatapu College; Professor James Chapman, Head of the Massey College of Education and Elaine Reilly, CEO, Vision Manawatū.
