SpeakerName: Dr. Nur Anuar Muthalib

Description: This presentation discussed the provision of education for migrant children in Sabah, specifically as concerns the cooperation between the Malaysian and Indonesian governments in providing educational opportunities to Indonesian children living in palm oil plantations. This presentation highlighted the 9th Annual Consultation between Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak and President Dr. H. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, as this paved the way for the establishment of Community Learning Centers (CLCs) under the auspices of the Sekolah Indonesia Kota Kinabalu (SIKK) in Sabah for the children of Indonesian migrant workers in the plantation areas. This initiative also included the granting of permits for Indonesian teachers to teach at the CLCs.
