The symbolic capitulation of the vehicle was marked by the signing of the Cooperation Addendum by the Vice Chancellor for Research, Community Service, Cooperation, and Unpad Academic Corporation, Dr. Keri Lestari, M.Sc., with the Director of PT. Gametraco Tunggal, Johan Soedibjo, in the Executive Lounge Unpad Jatinangor campus, Tuesday (12/3).

Dr. Keri said that Unpad’s collaboration with PT. Gametraco Tunggal is considered to provide mutual benefits for the two parties. As a provider of telecommunications tower, PT. Gametraco has built three Base Transceiver Station (BTS) towers on Unpad campus in Jatinangor since 2015.

“Cooperation in the form of strengthening interconnectivity is an important collaboration to improve the performance of education and research,” said Dr. Keri.

He hoped that this strategic cooperation could be developed in other sectors. “We are looking forward (for other types of cooperation), including in the form of educational scholarships,” added Dr. Keri.

Meanwhile, Johan said that it was the second time the company gave a minibus unit. In March 2016, PT. Gametraco Tunggal has provided one campus transportation unit to Unpad.

He explained, giving minibuses is a compensation for the use of campus land for the construction of the tower. For this reason, he also appreciated Unpad’s willingness to provide land for BTS towers.

“We thank Unpad for giving us the opportunity to run our business for 3 years,” Johan said.

The event was attended by Director of Unpad Academic and Library Resources, Dr. Teuku Yan Waliana Muda Iskandarsyah, a number of Research Managers, Community Service, Innovation, and Cooperation in the faculty environment, as well as representatives from PT. Gametraco Tunggal. *
