JOHOR BARU: Sutera Mall will be hosting a month-long exhibition on the legacy of two outstanding figures, Chinese educator and entrepreneur Tan Kah Kee and Lee Kong Chian at Level 4, Sutera Mall here.

Senior centre manager Crystal Soon said Tan and Lee were both selfless and diligent individuals who have built business empires spanning a century and contributed to the prosperity of Malaysia and Singapore.

“The spirit of giving back to the society is also one of the key aspirations and they also founded many schools in Malaysia, China and Singapore,” she said.
