PETALING JAYA: New expertise and manpower are essential in the development of the country, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong in congratulating the recent graduates of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).
The UTM alumnus said this in a Facebook post dedicated to his junior Soh Ren Chai, who had completed his bachelor's degree in civil engineering at the university.
"I pray that he continues to be successful especially in the field of civil engineering and that he can further contribute to our country for the sake of a more advanced and developed Malaysia.
"Congratulations are also extended to all UTM graduates. Good luck to you all," the Transport Minister said in a Facebook Wednesday (Nov 16).
He also posted photos of him with Soh, who was clad in the UTM graduation robe.
Dr Wee graduated from UTM with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering in 1992 and later a PhD in transportation planning in 2002.
Dr Wee, who is MCA president, is also the Barisan Nasional candidate for the Ayer Hitam seat, which he is vying to retain in the 15th General Election (GE15).
Polling has been set for Saturday (Nov 19).
