Toray, represented by Toray Group (Malaysia) Chief Representative Mr. Masahiko Kawamura, recently participated in the University-Industry Dialogue with the Minister of Higher Education (MOHE), held in Penang on the 6th November 2017.
Hosted by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and chaired personally by MOHE Minister Dato’ Seri Idris Jusoh, the dialogue between the academicians and industry captains are aimed at improving the talent market efficiency as well as addressing the manpower and skill mismatch between the academia and the industry sectors. In total, some 400 participants attended the half day dialogue.
The lively dialogue allows the participants to understand the Education blueprint programs organized under the 11th Malaysia Plan, besides gauging the future requirements of the industry sectors, specifically in terms of students’ quality, quantity, curriculum, collaboration and partnership needed.
In line with our corporate philosophy of “Contributing to society through the creation of new value with innovative ideas, technologies and products”, Toray support this initiative and shall work closely with the local institutions, particularly USM in more collaborations, partnership and technology exchanges to move forward the communities.
