Abstract

Contributes towards human resource development. Human resource development is one of the key areas targeted under BIMP-EAGA areas of co-operation. This paper will focus on the strengths that Malaysian institutions of higher learning have towards human resource development in this sub-regional economic growth area and the ASEAN region as a whole. Some of the strengths of Malaysian institutions of higher learning in EAGA region include supportive Malaysian government policies in making Malaysia as a regional educational hub; increasing importance of skill based production in Southeast Asian countries; courses offered which are of relevance to the labour market needs; rapid developments in Malaysia-EAGA; a global network of strategic collaboration; diversity of culture and safe studying environment and qualified expertise available in Malaysia-EAGA institutions of higher learning. These factors can contribute towards enhancing the potential of Malaysia generally and Malaysia-EAGA specifically in human resource development in EAGA region.
