The meeting commenced with a presentation of the UTAR corporate video and Prof Ewe’s welcoming address. Prof Ewe expressed his warmest welcome and gratitude to the visitors and looked forward to closer collaboration with Beijing Jiaotong University in future. He said, “UTAR will actively develop any possible collaboration with Beijing Jiaotong University as soon as possible to benefit more students. We just recently received sponsorship from the Malaysian Association in the People’s Republic of China (MAPROC) to facilitate our students in exchange programmes, internships and study tours to China. I believe today’s MoU with Beijing Jiaotong University will enable our students to gain more exposure to new knowledge, broaden their global perspectives and learn from international peers.”

Prof Chen remarked, “Beijing Jiaotong University visits foreign institutions every year and I am glad to say that today’s visit is the first visit for us in 2017. This will be a fruitful visit because we exchange our MoU documents today which is a step towards bringing more benefits to both universities’ students. Beijing Jiaotong University is an old university in China and there are huge numbers of our graduates supporting the transport industry in China. I hope we are able to exploit the strengths of each university to develop the best possible collaboration for our students.”

The MoU exchange ceremony wrapped up with an exchange of souvenirs and a group photo session.
