KUCHING: The Borneo Post and Curtin University of Technology in Miri are on course for a closer working relationship with focus on education.
Yesterday, Pro Vice-Chancellor and chief executive Prof John Evans, director of development and marketing Alex Chung and manager for corporate communications Nicholas Leong from Miri campus visited The Borneo Post office at Crown Towers.
Among the issues discussed were research and development (R&D) and youth development programmes to benefit both parties and society at large.
The group was briefed by The Borneo Post acting editor-in-chief Jimmy Adit and editor (operations) Dorge Rajah.
“We (the university) are looking forward to a closer relationship with the paper (The Borneo Post),” said Chung.
Both Evans and Leong agreed to the idea that offers a win-win situation to both the organisations and the public.
They were pleased with the support from The Borneo Post, particularly its Miri reporting team, on the activities of the university.
Another discussion will be held after the Chinese New Year to finalise how the two organisations can start working together.
Meanwhile, Curtin University of Technology will be among the institutions of higher learning to participate in The Borneo Post International Education Fair (BPIEF) 2010 to be launched on March 26 at Permata Carpark by Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud and Deputy Prime Minister who is also Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
