Italy to help establish biomedical institute

Letizia Moratti, the mayor of Milan, announced plans to acquire what she called a world-class facility and biomedical institute, under an agreement between the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority and a top oncology institute in Milan. Moratti recently made an official visit to the Saudi capital, Riyadh, in an effort to strengthen ties between the two nations in fields of education and culture. The institute will enroll Saudi students for higher studies and research, with an initial enrollment of up to 150 students according to Moratti.
