Wednesday, 3rd March 2024, General Manager Mr. Yuki Nakamura paid a courtesy visit to YB Dato Sri Roland Sagah, Minister for Education, Innovation, and Talent Development Sarawak (MEITD).

The visit was aimed at discussing explorative ways of enhancing Sarawakian education through Pertama’s Education Trust for Sarawak State.

Mr. Nakamura sought advice from Dato Sri Roland on how the education trust can be more effective for local Sarawakians. He emphasized the importance of providing financial assistance to students who excel academically but do not have the financial means to afford quality education. This education initiative is in line with Pertama’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Social Development Goals (SDG) philosophy.

During the visit, Mr. Nakamura also took the opportunity to introduce the University of Tsukuba (UTMy), the first Japanese university with a branch campus in Malaysia. UTMy, a globally recognized institution ranked highly in Japan, offers Bachelor of Arts and Science programs, granting students a Japanese degree upon graduation.
