The interdepartmental working group established to consider the internationalisation of education services received a total of 25 submissions. The group met a number of interested parties who made presentations and answered queries on issues that arose. The group is now in the process of drafting its report and recommendations based on the submissions and discussions held. I expect to receive the report in the near future and I propose to then bring it to Government.
