Okayama University concluded a university-level agreement with Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) on 18 April 2014.
Seven people from UPM including the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Dr. Mohd Fauzi Hj. Ramlan, and ten people from Okayama University including Vice-President, Dr. Masaru Araki (Executive Director of Social Responsibility and International Affairs) and Dr. Hiroshi Kanzaki (Dean of Graduate School of Environmental and Life Science) attended the signing ceremony.
Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Dr. Mohd Fauzi Hj. Ramlan, and Vice-President, Dr. Masaru Araki, signed the agreement.
In his speech Vice-President Araki said: “We would like to promote greater interactions in all fields as well as the agriculture field which we cultivated for years.” Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Dr. Mohd Fauzi Hj. Ramlan, said: “We would like to deepen the current cooperative relationship and look forward to developing interactions in new fields through this agreement.”
UPM and Okayama University have nurtured exchanges through the project of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for five years from 1990, and Faculty of Agriculture concluded a faculty-level agreement in 2000. This time the faculty-level agreement was upgraded to the university-level agreement for greater interaction.
