Description:


The Limkokwing University of Creative Technology will open a campus in Uganda, its fourth in Africa, said Uganda’s Vice-President Edward Ssekandi.

"Limkokwing has announced that they will be opening a campus in Uganda," Ssekandi said, adding that he visited the university in Cyberjaya on Saturday.

He was addressing fellow leaders during the Langkawi International Dialogue 2011 session on "Realising National Visions through Socio-Economic Transformation" on Sunday 18 June.

 

Addressing participants at the Ninth Langkawi International Dialogue 2011, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, announced that Malaysia’s Limkokwing University of Creative Technology is offering scholarships to the tune of RM12 million to African countries participating in the smart partnership movement.

 

More than 12,000 students are currently studying in Limkokwing's campuses in Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland all in Southern Africa

Later in the evening, Ssekandi met Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for a bilateral meeting at the premier's suite at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre.

Speaking after the meeting, Ssekandi said both countries would further enhance trade ties and cooperate in the field of education and innovation. "We had a good bilateral meeting today in which we discussed specific technical aspects of bilateral trade and on how to further increase the number of Ugandan students pursuing tertiary education in Malaysia," he said.

Ssekandi was optimistic the bilateral meeting would open the gateway for businessmen from Uganda & Malaysia to identify new export products.
