TANJUNG MALIM: The Perak government would be happy to name one of the roads in the state after the late academician, Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Khoo Kay Kim.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu said this could be done once a proposal was received from any party.

“We have absolutely no doubt about the magnitude of the services rendered (to the country) by the late (Khoo), in fact, if there are proposals to do so, it will most certainly be considered,” he said after officiating the SMK Methodist award presentation ceremony, here, today.

On Thursday, Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah consented to renaming Jalan Semangat in Petaling Jaya to Jalan Profesor Khoo Kay Kim in remembrance of the national historian’s many contributions to the country.
