Honorable visit of PSU delegates to Bahrain

Thirteen PSU delegates, led by PSU President Asst. Prof. Dr. Niwat Keawpradub, visited several outstanding institutions and universities in Bahrain from 26 to 28 March 2019, through the kind arrangement and thoughtful facilitation by H.E. Mr. Thanis Na Songkhla, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to the Kingdom of Bahrain, and Mr. Banna Vaungvivat, Minister Counsellor.



On 27 March 2019, PSU delegates had the honor of an auspicious audience with His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The delegation reported on the progress of the university’s operations related to collaboration with Bahraini institutions in various areas, including public health and education. The delegates also detailed the current operation and future improvement plans of the “His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa” Bahrain Information Center, a noble initiative attesting to His Royal Highness’ kind support of future generations.

This auspicious event was a blissful opportunity for PSU to receive His Royal Highness’ insightful advice on strengthening collaboration between the two nations by developing the public health and academic sector through exchanging expertise.

On the same day, Asst. Prof. Dr. Niwat Keawpradub, PSU President, and H.E. Faeqa bint Saeed AlSaleh, Minister of Health of the Kingdom of Bahrain, signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Health of the Kingdom of Bahrain and Prince of Songkla University. The agreement outlines various ways of cooperation in medical and health science related fields, particularly through visiting doctor programs, patient referrals and training programs. A visiting doctor program has already been implemented with great success, involving Thai doctors practicing their trade at esteemed Bahraini institutions. A training program will be initiated in the near future, with four Bahraini doctors attending PSU’s Faculty of Medicine in July 2019.
