A five-year agreement has been signed between two universities in Japan and Cuba. It is hoped that the agreement will help provide better exchange opportunities for both students and tutors. The agreement will also provide a better environment for bilateral cooperation for Japan and Cuba, which will hopefully lead to expertise being shared between the two universities in terms of teaching both the Japanese and Spanish languages.
Changes taking place within the Malaysian economy are causing a rise in unemployment prospects across different business sectors. This is leading to a competitive job market for both new and recent graduates alike. The change is believed to be caused by the current shift from a manufacturing and services based sector to one focusing more towards advanced skills and digital technology.
