GUANGDONG– January 19, 2018: In a bid to help bolster Malaysia’s education and employment sectors, the master developer of Forest City (FC) and Country Garden Pacificview (CGPV) has inked a partnership with two institutions.

The three-point Memorandum of Understanding signed at a ceremony here today was between CGPV, Malaysia’s Southern University College and Guangdong Country Garden Polytechnic.

The agreement encompasses students exchange and twinning programmes.

Southern University College board of directors chairman Datuk Vincent Tan Meng Seng said the courses for the programmes are early childhood education, hotel management and other related professional courses.

The dean of Country Garden Polytechnic Liu Huijian said the strategic cooperation will not only facilitate exchanges of ideas but also improve Malaysia-China bilateral relations.

CGPV corporate communication director Aeron Munajat said students will be given the opportunity to undergo a one-year internship at any CGPV owned companies, including FC. Interns who excel will be absorbed as permanent employees.

Present during the signing were Johor Education director Norbiha Buang, Southern University College deputy chairman Mok Chek Hou, executive director Datuk Teo Poh Boon and Guoqiang Public Welfare Foundation deputy secretary-general Liu Gang.
