Sufficient allocation to send Mara-sponsored students abroad, says Mahdzir

TUMPAT: Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) has a sufficient allocation to continue sponsoring students to further their studies abroad, said Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid (pic).

The Rural Development Minister said Mara would continue its sponsorship programme despite economic uncertainty in the country.

“The government will continue to send (Mara-sponsored) students overseas. We are receiving an allocation for education annually, so there is not need to worry,” he told reporters after launching the Bekwoh Keluarga Malaysia Rakyat Tumpat programme and Felcra Bhd zakat distribution programme here Saturday (Aug 6).

Also present was Felcra Bhd chairman Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub. - Bernama
