The LPU will award degrees/diplomas to 7,549 regular students, 55 part-time students, and 11,971 distance education students of the 2018 and 2019 batches.

With Dutch as official language, Suriname has multi-diversity with 22 per cent Hindu population.

Famous for its water lilies and orchids, Suriname is a small country on the north-eastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is one of the top producers of Bauxite in the world, which is the primary source of revenue.

Almost 80 of its landmass is untouched rainforest and protected bio-reserves, which has attracted countless tourists over the years.

With a rise in ecotourism and diversification of exports, the potential for Suriname’s economy to improve is high. Its vice-president Adhin is an educator by heart. At present, he is the chairman of the Council of Ministers of Suriname.

As a young accomplished individual of Indian origin, Adhin has affinity for India and Indians. LPU students will indeed be fortunate in receiving the convocation message from such a leader.

LPU chancellor Ashok Mittal said: “On the convocation day, an exceptional glimpse of international integrity will be seen when students from 50 countries will also receive degrees/certificates along with their Indian classmates, from across the country.”
