SUA and NODAI have an enduring and thriving long relationship on education exchanges on the fields of agriculture education, research and innovation that helped many Tanzanians to access on academic exchanges through international seminars and scientific conferences, joint research, and human resource development, among other things. The SUA-NODAI exchange program has benefited quite a large number of Tanzanians since MOU was concluded in 2009.
