PUTRAJAYA – Fiji and Yemen are among several foreign countries keen to emulate Malaysia Education Blue Print (PPPM) 2013-2025 through the National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS) in their national education systems.
Education Ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Dr. Madinah Mohamad said the interest was expressed by the delegations and representatives of foreign countries attending the International Conference On Blue Ocean Strategy (ICBOS) today.
“There are several more countries interested and wanted to know in depth on our blueprint. There are also requests for a copy of my slideshow. This is a very positive impact that we are proud of,” she said when met by Bernama and Oriental Daily on the sidelines of the concurrent session at the ICBOPS here.
Earlier Madinah was a panelist at the Innovative Public Service Delivery session.
She said PPPM, which was developed with a holistic framework, requires cooperation and leadership at all levels, including from the minister, secretary general, director general, school administration to the parents to make it a success.
The ICBOS is held in conjunction with the NBOS International Week 2016 from Aug 14 to 20 at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC).
The conference focuses on creativity and innovation in the design and implementation of national initiatives and policies, panel discussion leaders, renowned speakers and international experts from all over the globe.
Madinah said, prior to this, Bhutan had recognised PPPM, which was understood to be currently being implemented and used in their education system.
PPPM is the outcome of extensive research and public involvement that was conducted and developed to improve the standard and quality of the education system as a whole.
