ANOTHER BOOST ... MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Ling Liong Sik receiving a cheque for RM300,000 as donations to build Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) from Terengganu MCA chairman Datuk Lau Yin Pin during a ceremony in Kuala Terengganu on Friday night.  

The money is Terengganu MCA's contribution.  

Dr Ling said Utar, which received strong support in cash and kind from multi-ethnic Malaysians, would mark another milestone next week ) when Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad performed the ground breaking ceremony for its main campus in Kampar, Perak. 

He said a Malay businessman had offered to donate 200ha of land in Johor Baru, worth RM60mil at current market price, to build a Utar branch campus there. 

The Johor government had also agreed to allocate 500ha of land at Kulai for a Utar branch campus to be sited there, he added. 

Dr Ling said campaigns to raise funds for Utar, including jogathons and golf tournaments, were being organised by MCA nationwide.
