Published on


BEIJING – Four Malaysian Technical University (MTU) universities signed a TVET LOI with the Guizhou Institute of Technology (GIT) in South-west China.

The universities signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP), Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM), and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Melaka (UTeM), according to a statement from Education Malaysia Beijing (EMB).

The LOI was signed recently in Guiyang, China, during the Second Malaysia-China (Guizhou) Education Cooperation Forum, which was organised by EMB in collaboration with MTU and GIT in conjunction with the China Asean Education Cooperation Week (CAECW).

The Malaysian consul-general in Nanning, Azlimi Zakaria, and EMB acting director, Jason Choy Min Seng, were also present at the forum.

According to the EMB statement, each party will encourage academic cooperation, including student and academic staff exchange programmes and research cooperation.

With 13,000 full-time undergraduate students, GIT is a polytechnic that revitalises industry and urbanises Guizhou Province through engineering.

Recently, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Noraini Ahmad said Malaysia hopes to strengthen cooperation between government agencies, industry players, and the Chinese government to improve TVET in both countries.

She also said that Malaysian-Chinese cooperation helps many TVET students and graduates get work experience and create an efficient workforce.
