China Embassy awards scholarships to 55 UTAR students

KUALA LUMPUR: Fifty-five Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman Foundation and undergraduate students have been awarded the China Ambassador Scholarship worth RM195,800 for the year 2021 to recognise their efforts and achievements in their studies.

The scholarships were presented by China’s Ambassador to Malaysia, Ouyang Yujing, at the award presentation e-ceremony 2021, which was held via Zoom on Nov 5, a statement from UTAR said.

The recipients were 55 UTAR Foundation and undergraduate students comprising Malays, Chinese, Indians and other races.

In his remarks, Ouyang Yujing said UTAR has also made an outstanding contribution to deepen mutual learning between youths, besides actively teaching Chinese culture, which helps promote educational exchanges between Malaysia and China.

The Ambassador said that the Chinese Embassy would provide more youth exchanges, dialogues, and study and training opportunities.

“I hope you will make good use of these opportunities to enhance mutual learning and understanding with Chinese friends, become envoys of China-Malaysia friendship and contribute to the development of China-Malaysia relations,” he said.

“By doing this, I believe you will make positive contributions to build a community with a shared future for mankind.”

The ambassador also said that bilateral trade between Malaysia and China had achieved a new record of US$131.16bil (RM555.86bil) in 2020, a 5.7% year-on-year increase.

He added that according to China’s official figures, China-Malaysia bilateral trade hit US$81.79bil (RM346.63bil) in the first half of 2021, an increase of 43.9% over the same period last year.

Since 2016, over 200 UTAR students have benefitted from the scholarships totalling RM750,615, UTAR said in its statement. —Bernama
