This was the 2nd time His Excellency Mr. MOTSWAGAE has visited APU, having also visited APU in December last year.
During the conversation His Excellency Mr. MOTSWAGAE said "I will do my best to increase the number of students from Botswana in the future. Botswana wants to strengthen relations with Japan which is renowned for its scientific and technical expertise. I hope that we can build a cooperative relationship between Botswana and APU which can be the start of strengthening ties between our two countries".
