THE Education Ministry will work more closely with the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) in the areas of student exchange and teacher training.
Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said this after BFSU president Prof Hao Ping and senior officers from the Embassy of China in Malaysia paid him a courtesy call at his office on Jan 15.
This was a follow-up visit after the minister's trip to China in May last year.
Hishammuddin also discussed the establishment of an international school in Penang with Prof Hao, which he said would further strengthen the relationship between the two countries.
“The school will be a joint effort between BFSU and the private sector in Malaysia,” he said in a statement.
