Qatar University (QU) hosted yesterday a MoU signing ceremony with Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), which will strengthen cooperation between the two academic institutions, improve understanding and seeks to establish mutual beneficial collaborations to benefit the students.

The signing was attended by a number of dignitaries from Malaysia including His Highness Tengku Sarafudin Badlishah Ibni Al Aminul Karim Sultan Sallehuddin, Crown Prince of Kedah; Prof. Dato’ Dr. Ahmad Bashawir bin Hj. Abdul Ghani, UUM Vice-Chancellor and The Honourable Dato’ Seri Utama Haji Mukhriz Tun Mahathir, Chief Minister of Kedah.

QU President Dr. Hassan Al-Derham was on hand to sign the agreement and spoke on the occasion saying, “We are honored to host the Universiti Utara Malaysia and to sign this agreement between both universities. It is important for universities to work together to collaborate in terms of faculty and student exchange, as well as co-organizing symposiums and workshops. Our relationship with Malaysia is very strong, His Highness the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani visited Malaysia on a state visit two years ago, where he signed several MoUs with different institutions. It is essential for us to follow up with widening our collaboration with universities in Malaysia because Malaysia’s development is a model for us both economically, socially but also specifically in education and higher education. Therefore we are honored to have this collaboration and we look forward to working together.”

UUM Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dato’ Dr. Ahmad Bashawir bin Hj. Abdul Ghani also spoke on the occasion and expressed his appreciation saying it was a great opportunity to visit the QU campus and meet the community. He spoke about UUM and its areas of focus, listing the universities most recent achievements, and expressed enthusiasm on behalf of UUM in establishing a formal educational collaboration with QU.
