Wuyi University interested in improving Sabah road, rail transport

14th January, 2019

By MICHAEL TEH

KOTA KINABALU: Wuyi University, China has expressed its keen interest to assist Sabah to improve its road and rail transport.

It has also signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) in October 2017, to establish cooperative ties.

Disclosing this was its president Zhang Yunhua during a luncheon with UMS officials hosted by The United Sabah Sze Yip Association president Datuk Susan Wong Siew Guen here, on Sunday. Also in attendance was UMS vice chancellor Professor Datuk Dr D Kamarudin D Mudin.

Zhang also disclosed that the People’s Government of Guangdong Province has injected more funds into Wuyi University to boost the institution’s academic developments and goals. This includes recruiting more overseas master and doctoral students in the next few years.

He thus hoped that overseas Chinese students would consider pursuing their tertiary education at the university, which specialises in science and engineering courses.

Meanwhile, Susan hoped that there would be more student and academic exchanges between both universities in the future.

Susan, who is also the event chairperson for the Chinese New Year Dragon, Unicorn and Lion Dance Festival and Cultural Village Exhibition on January 19, invited Dr Kamarudin and Wuyi University delegates to the event. Dr Kamarudin agreed to attend the cultural event on the spot.

Susan also informed her guests that the Chinese New Year Dragon, Unicorn and Lion Dance Festival would take place from 12 noon to 7pm on the same day. The event will be officiated by the Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Mohd Shafie Apdal. Apart from thrilling dragon, unicorn and lion dances, there will be special appearance by the God of Fortune, luminous dragon dance and 24 drums performance.

Meanwhile, the Cultural Village Exhibition featuring Chinese tea culture and pastries will be held at the corridor of Likas Sports Complex starting from 8.30am onwards on January 19. The exhibition will be launched by the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Kota Kinabalu, Liang Caide.

Also present at the courtesy call was Huang Association of Malaysia president Datuk Wong Ten An.
