The Government of India provided the University a grant of USD 1 million through ADB for Regional Technical Assistance (RETA) on “The Creation of the Pacific Information Superhighway with The University of the South Pacific Network”. This project helped expand USP’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) network across its regional campuses through the installation of the i-Direct system. The Technical Assistance resulted in the development of a soft loan proposal to improve access to tertiary education in the Pacific through the development of two new campuses in Kiribati and Solomon Islands and improved connectivity of regional campuses.

The Indian Universities and Institutes collaborated on USP’s initiative in the following areas:

  1. Curriculum development, the exchange of Distance Flexible Learning (DFL) expertise, training of USP staff, and live delivery of courses;
  2. Facilitate academic cooperation in the areas of joint research, policy dialogue, and publications for national, regional and international forum and capacity building; and
  3. Faculty exchanges, joint research, and assistance to USP in the area of economic modeling.
