Malaysia, Tsinghua University to explore greater academic cooperation — PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 19 — China’s Tsinghua University will strengthen cooperation with Malaysia by exchanging students, academics, and researchers and embracing joint research opportunities, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He said this was among the matters discussed when Tsinghua University president Wang Xiqin paid him a courtesy call at the Finance Ministry in Putrajaya yesterday.

“Tsinghua University is also planning to hold a programme in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Malaysia-China diplomatic relations next year.

“My hope is that this collaboration can be expanded as Tsinghua University is one of the most renowned and internationally recognised in academic research and the field of education, especially in engineering, science and technology,” he said in a Facebook post yesterday.

Anwar said there were 350 Malaysian students at Tsinghua University — the highest proportion of foreign students at the institution.
