THIS October, student leaders in Australia will have the unique opportunity to engage with some of Malaysia’s most influential thinkers at the Malaysian Aspiration Summit 2012.

High profile politicians and intellectuals from Malaysia will be in Melbourne on October 7 for an annual national summit for student leaders in Australia.

The Malaysian Aspiration Summit 2012 has been organised by the Malaysian Students Council of Australia (MASCA) with the aim of exploring and better understanding the challenges faced by Malaysia and Malaysians in Australia.

The event will feature keynote addresses from Malaysia’s Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Senator YB Gan Ping Sieu, general manager of Petronas Mr Mohammad Medan Abdullah, People’s Justice Party’s director of strategies, Mr Rafizi Ramli, the programmer director for the Merdeka Centre for Opinion Research, Mr Ibrahim Suffian, and the president of the Australia Malaysia Business Council’s Victoria Chapter, Mr Joe Perri.

Topics covered will include how Malaysian companies can better prepare themselves to compete on the world stage as well as discussions on the way Malaysia’s Generation Y is engaging with politics in Malaysia.

Those who sign up early will be in the running for an Apple iPhone 5 and two Air Asia X tickets from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
