CHINESE education in Malaysia is hailed as among the best in the world, China Press reported.
Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference vice-chairman Wan Gang said at one of the group sessions of the ongoing annual meeting in Beijing that Malaysians’ emphasis on Chinese education contributed to the continuous existence of Chinese culture in the world.
Melaka’s special economic envoy to China Datuk Gan Tian Loo, who was among the foreign guests attending the meeting, introduced Chinese education in Malaysia to the delegates, where he proposed that China support the development of Chinese education through efforts such as teacher training.
Citing the Xiamen University Malaysia Campus as an example, Gan hoped China would allow more of its higher education institutions to be set up overseas.
