CHINESE associations and companies have been urged to recognise the medical certificates (MCs) issued by qualified Chinese physicians, Sin Chew Daily and Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
Hua Zong, the Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia, has advised the Chinese Physicians Association of Malaysia to come out with guidelines on how Chinese businessmen could verify the MCs issued by the Chinese physicians.
Nanyang quoted Hua Zong president Datuk Seri Lim Gait Tong as saying that this was necessary to encourage the recognition of the MCs.
Lim said Hua Zong, since its establishment, had always recognised MCs issued by Chinese physicians.
Sin Chew meanwhile reported him as saying that there was still a lot of effort to be put in to promote the status of Chinese physicians as it was not very often that the Chinese associations recognised them.
On another matter, China Press reported that Hua Zong would help the management of non-commercial Chinese cemeteries who were being taxed to submit their documents to the Finance Ministry in the middle of September.
If they are managing the cemeteries for the benefit of people, we will help them.
But if they are managing the cemeteries as a business concern, they should pay taxes, he said.
Lim said that Hua Zong had contacted Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Ng Yen Yen and the ministry had promised to look into the problem.
