The President's Speech


As President of NAPEI, the oldest Malaysian association for private education, it is my privilege to welcome you to our website. On behalf of NAPEI, I extend warm “GREETINGS and WELCOME”.

More than twenty years ago in 1987, a few individuals in the private education sector saw the need for a collective and concerted effort to enhance and protect the interest of a fast developing private education industry. Today with more than 60 members in the PEI (Private Educational Institutions), NAPEI plays a major role to monitor various legislations, rules & regulations, government policies and issues affecting private education.

Our Association has a membership profile that covers preschool centres to colleges and universities, vocational education providers and supplementary education service providers such as publishers, consultants and education agents.

We have played a pivotal role to ensure the continued growth of all private education providers – be it big or small. In upholding the interests of its stakeholders, the Association has always expressed itself boldly in all education and government forums and seminars.

NAPEI sits on various government and quasi government bodies and has contributed regularly to discussions and policy developments that concern private education providers. We have, through regular memorandums to various ministries, drawn the attention of the government to policies that affect PEI’s. Our presence is strongly felt in all dialogues with government agencies and has ensured a check and balance in the interest of all PEI’s. NAPEI does not differentiate between members and non members; our philosophy is to represent Malaysian Private Education on the whole.

Education is global today. NAPEI’s role is to continue to steer its members in the direction of globalisation and internationalisation. Together, we work to achieve nation building and produce a workforce which is industry-ready. We invite all PEI’s in Malaysia to be members of NAPEI, to speak as one voice and to share our experience for the continued development of Malaysian private education industry. We hope to engage you in our activities and spread the fellowship of a dynamic education industry.
