ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality, value-based education, joined major UAE investors and dignitaries in discussing potential partnership opportunities with Malaysia during an exclusive Business Roundtable and Luncheon held recently at the InterContinental Abu Dhabi hotel.
The Honourable Tan Sri Dato’ Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin, Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, expressed his country’s interest in enhancing collaboration between the countries’ educational sectors. Prominent guests present during the meeting included H.E. Khalfan Saeed Al Kaabi, First Vice Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry and H.E. Fatima Obaid Al Jaber, COO of Al Jaber Group and President of ALHOSN University’s Society of Women in Engineering (SOWIE).
“We had a productive sharing of insights with The Honourable Tan Sri Dato’ Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin on how we could further expand the scope and field of cooperation between Malaysia and the UAE in areas such as teacher training and learning standards. He appreciated our focus on providing ‘global knowledge with local vision’ and expressed a genuine interest in exchanging more visits with the university. We will look more closely into how we can enhance collaboration in mutually pursuing higher standards of educational delivery and excellence,” said Prof. Sabouni.
