SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government is offering five to 10 scholarships worth RM100,000 each for a year's study, to Malay and Indian students who had their early education in Chinese schools and are fluent in Chinese to further their studies in universities in China.

Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the students would be given the opportunity to do their postgraduate degree in business studies in Beijing and Shanghai.

"The state government hopes that this would enable Selangor graduates to explore the knowledge, expertise and skills in business in a country which had charted the highest economic growth.

"This would also encourage language proficiency and attract students to study a language other than their mother tongue," he said after the weekly state executive council meeting yesterday.

He added that aside from gaining valuable education, the students could also set up a business network and form international relationships with fellow students in China.

On the government's purchase of a fleet of 15 Toyota Camry cars which arrived on Friday, Khalid said he had not received the figures on how much they cost the state.

"I will make the announcement. We will also announce how much the state had spent to repair the cars (Perdana V6 Executive) last year.

"The conclusion will show that it is cheaper to get the new cars than to continue using the old ones."
