Huazong asks for funding for three community-run Chinese universities

PETALING JAYA: The Federation of Chinese Associations of Malaysia (Huazong) has asked the new government for the funding needed to revive three Chinese community-run universities.

The three universities are the Southern University College, New Era University College and the Han Chiang University College of Communication, all of which were receiving RM6mil for two consecutive years when Pakatan Harapan came to power in 2018.

Huazong president Tan Sri T.C. Goh (pic) said each university received RM2mil each to help alleviate the financial burden of the Chinese community for operating the three university colleges.

"We hope the new administration of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim can resume the aid and if necessary increase the annual allocation. We are looking forward to a good future under the unity government led by Anwar," said Goh when officiating the 47th-anniversary celebration of the Southern College University on Sunday (Nov 27).

He said the three universities have their own strengths and qualities as higher learning institutions with their own commendable achievements.

"The non-profit Chinese community-run higher learning institutions had over the years produced talents of various sectors for the country, besides preserving the Chinese education and culture, which is a unique feature for multiracial Malaysia," added Goh.
