Penang, Malaysia - The GHEF 2007 will gather policy-makers, higher education researchers and experts from all over the world to deliberate on higher education issues with a view to sharing of experiences and visions.

Around the world, higher education institutions view higher education as increasingly central to national economies, as a source of educated and trained personnel for national sustainable development and as a significant industry in its own right. Developed and developing nations alike have been examining most successful ways to heed calls for improved and relevant provisions of higher education, calls made more complex and imperative due to the challenge transforming the field of higher education. Some of these challenges include changes imposed by the forces of globalization and internationalization, rapid technological innovation (which require adaptability and computerization), access and equity concerns and the changing nature of the marketplace of higher education.

Within these parameters, it becomes increasingly necessary for various stakeholders to meet together at academic forums to discuss and debate the key interconnected issues related to knowledge and relevant human resource development. The Global Higher Education Forum, Malaysia 2007 (GHEF 2007) will bring together higher education leaders, scholars, policy makers, and administrators to reflect, analyze and discuss the different issues and explore policies to improve the future provision of quality and relevant higher education in countries around the world. Fruitful deliberations at past global higher education forums have helped stakeholders find successful strategies to improve teaching, learning and research at higher education institutions and enhance relevance of their "output".

GHEF 2007 is co-organized by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, the International Association of Universities and National Higher Education Research Institute (IPPTN). The forum will be held on 6 and 7 November 2007 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
