ZAGREB, January 18, 2018 – The government on Thursday adopted memorandums of consent which the Science and Education Ministry signed with the University of Magallanes from Chile and the National University of Rosario’s Faculty of Humanities and Arts from Argentina and an agreement with the University of Buenos Aires Faculty of Philosophy and Literature, on setting up a Croatian language and literature instructorship.

The purpose of the memorandums and the agreement is to step up linguistic, educational and cultural cooperation between Croatia and Chile and Croatia and Argentina in order to encourage students to study the Croatian language and literature.

The Croatian Science and Education Ministry will pay the instructors’ monthly salary and provide the necessary literature, while Chile and Argentina will pay for the costs of accommodation and facilities where classes will be held, Science and Education Minister Blaženka Divjak said.

“These agreements are very good for the promotion of the Croatian language and literature,” Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said.
