KUCHING: The National Transformation Agenda that focuses on all aspects of development is a bold step towards betterment of the country’s system.

Pointing this out, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr Alfred Jabu Numpang said the scope of the agenda reflected the passion and commitment of the government to move the people forward.

“The government does not forget rural folks in this effort, especially Sabah and Sarawak where focus is given to development of basic infrastructure,” said Jabu.

Jabu, who is also University Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) Pro Chancellor, said this on Unimas’ third day of convocation at Dewan Detar yesterday.

He foresaw that graduates from Unimas would be embracing this change, and should be able to adapt to put their skills into practice.

Jabu said parents could learn from the song ‘Wawasan Berkikis Bulu Betis’, a popular Iban pop song, which inspires parents in the struggle to do just about anything to ensure their children receive the best available education.

With Unimas at 22 years old, Jabu was proud that it is listed among 200 best universities under the QS Asian University Ranking 2013.

“This directly translates into the visibility of Unimas in the global context, and the university must be dynamic, progressive and brave to adapt to future challenges,” he said.

Earlier, Unimas deputy chancellor Professor Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said the student intake in Unimas saw an increase with 16,452 students enrolled for the September intake (2014/2015 session), exceeding the 15,000 target.

“It is a statement of the popularity and credibility of Unimas as the university of choice for higher education,” he said.

He revealed that Unimas is planning to build an integrated lifetime learning centre and postgraduate programme in Klang Valley, an integrated learning centre for SCORE (Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy) in Sibu and a research centre in Mukah.

A total of 1,547 students received their scrolls on the last day of convocation yesterday.
