"Together, these two universities have produced about 210,000 graduates," he said during MCA's "Stronger Together" roadshow at SJKC Thung Hon in Tanjung Tualang on Saturday.
"We will continue to ensure that UTAR and TAR UC be improved further to be among the best in Asia," he said.

"These include Beijing University and Tsinghua University in China," he said.
