Raise quality of tertiary education, depts and agencies told

JOHOR BARU: All departments and agencies under the Higher Education Ministry have been told to redouble their efforts and come up with new innovations to raise the quality of tertiary education, says Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.

The Higher Education Minister said he has been briefed by the ministry and the Higher Education Department.

“Various issues have been presented and discussed including the higher education sector’s direction and its challenges.

“All departments and agencies under the ministry must redouble their efforts and come up with new innovations to ensure the mandate of their establishment and the quality of higher education is boosted,” he added.

The Umno vice-president, who won the Kota Tinggi parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election, said this in a Facebook post yesterday.

Mohamed Khaled said he would continue meeting with other departments and agencies under the ministry to learn more about the emerging issues and discuss immediate and long-term measures needed.

Meanwhile, Johor Umno treasurer Datuk Md Jais Sarday said the former Johor mentri besar is the right person to lead the ministry.

“Mohamed Khaled is a workaholic. He is a pragmatic and practical leader with good networking that will help to get the job done,” he said adding that he experienced it first-hand when he worked as a state executive councillor under Mohamed Khaled’s administration.
