PUTRAJAYA: Good policies under the previous administration would continue to be implemented, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin says.

At the same time, the Kota Tinggi MP said he would also be exploring new initiatives that would take the higher education sector to greater heights.

“The last time I was here was in 2013.

“Although people describe (my appointment) as ‘sireh pulang ke gagang’ (back to where one started), I feel that a lot of things have changed and good policies will definitely be continued,” he added.

Mohamed Khaled said the higher education sector had undergone changes and faced new challenges after the country was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We need to look at how this sector can cope with all of these,” he said when assuming his official duties at the ministry by clocking in at 12.15pm yesterday.

He was greeted by the ministry’s secretary-general, Datuk Seri Abdul Razak Jaafar, and deputies, Datuk Dr Haji Megat Sany Megat Ahmad Supian (Policy) and Datuk Dr Mohd Zabri Yusoff (Management and Development), Bernama reported.

This is Mohamed Khalid’s second stint as the Higher Education Minister after assuming the post under the sixth Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
