RP has created a new international collaboration with the signing of a 36-month Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Temasek Polytechnic, the Department of Tourism, Philippines and the Province of Cebu on 28 September 2017.

The new Tourism and Hospitality Capability Development Programme arising from this agreement is supported by Temasek Foundation International – a Singapore-based non-profit organisation. Co-funded by the Department of Tourism in the Philippines and the Province of Cebu, this collaboration will cement inter-governmental ties on a cross-industry and multi-institutional level.

The MOU facilitates sharing of the best practices and strategies in the tourism industry, with RP contributing our trademark Problem-based Learning pedagogy. Such a partnership is also expected to encourage collaborative academic research among all parties involved, bolstering socioeconomic and cultural diversity in the process.
