VP Sara Duterte thanks Malaysia for accepting Filipino doctors, scientists

VICE President Sara Duterte extends her thanks to the Ministry of Education of Malaysia for accepting Filipino doctors and scientists in the country’s education sector.

This followed VP Duterte’s visit to the tropical medicine and public health network in Kuala Lumpur.

‘’We are grateful to them because we have Filipino Doctors and Filipino Scientists participating in their program in parasitology, microbiology, and entomology,’’ VP Sara said.

The Vice President initially paid a courtesy call to Honorable Fahdlina Sidek, Malaysia’s Education Minister.

This was followed by an official ceremony at the SEAMEO TROPMED Center and her visit to the TROPMED school.

According to Duterte, the Philippines wants to learn more steps and strategies from Malaysia for effective education in the country.

The Vice President also went to Setapak Vocational College, where she learned that Malaysia offers an Early Childhood Development Course.

This course provides training to teachers of early childhood development centers or those teaching children up to four years old.

‘’Here at the vocational college, it’s very insightful because we learned that Malaysia has an early childhood development course. It’s a 4-year course, and their graduates become teachers of early childhood development centers. These are the children we need to focus on and take care of because they are not yet in our public schools. These are the babies up to 4 years old who can be taught and nurtured by our teachers to initiate their care and education,’’ she stated.

Vice President Duterte plans to initiate discussions about establishing an Early Childhood Development Council in the Philippines to emulate such initiatives.

Meanwhile, Duterte also held a private meeting with honorable Dato Sri’ Fadillah Yusof, Malaysia’s Deputy Prime Minister.

Following this, the Vice President held a meeting with Filipino Community Leaders in Malaysia.
