schools.

corporation makes a profit from society, it must also have the heart to contribute back to them.”

Among those present at the gala dinner are T Dijaya Tropicana Foundation Chairman Datuk Rohana Tan Sri Mahmood, Dijaya Group CEO Tan Sri Dato’ Tan Chee Sing and his wife Puan Sri Chen Siew Chew, Ministry of Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Chor
