おめでとうございます。Omedetou gozaimasu & Tahniah dear Tun!
From all of us in Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology MJIIT UTM, Congratulations, YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad.
YAB Tun was recently conferred the Honorary Doctorate of Philosophy by the International University of Japan (IUJ). Throughout all these years, YAB Tun has outstandingly contributed towards the bilateral relationship between Malaysia and Japan.
At the ceremony of the conferment, IUJ president, Hiroyuki Itami has also talked about the Look East Policy that was mooted by YAB Tun. Itami highlighted that the Look East Policy plays a big role on higher education in ASEAN countries besides bringing Japan and Malaysia close together.
Tun Mahathir’s Look East Policy is a bridge which has enabled the Malaysian government to send hundreds of students and corporate trainees to Japan, also marking the birth of MJIIT UTM!
