KUALA LUMPUR: Japan’s ambassador to Malaysia Makio Miyagawa has been appointed as a member of the International Islamic University of Malaysia’s (IIUM) Board of Governors for two years, effective Nov 1.
IIUM in a statement today said its rector, Prof Dzulkifli Abdul Razak presented the letter of appointment to Miyagawa, 53, at the Japanese Embassy here on Nov 19.
The appointment of the ambassador is in line with IIMU’s Constitution to have a representative for institutions, bodies and honourable entities.
“His appointment as one of the members of the IIUM board of governors will help IIUM to work with leading Japanese universities in various fields.
“It will also open up opportunities to IIUM to form collaborations, especially in the fields of technology and the halal industry which is practical and in line with the Look East Policy that can be used as a benchmark for Malaysia-Japan bilateral relations in education,” it said.
Miyagawa has been Japan’s ambassador to Malaysia since 2014, and holds a doctorate in international relations and law from Oxford University, United Kingdom.
