On the 4th of July (Thursday), MSAJ was invited to have a small discussion session with delegates from “Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar Universiti Sains Malaysia (MPP USM) during their ‘Global Leadership Programme’ which was held in Tokyo, Japan.
The aim of the program was to provide exposure to all MPP USM members about oversea students’ association leadership to ensure that the students do not fall behind on current developments abroad. MPP USM members consisted of 30 students who came from the main and engineering campus while MSAJ was represented by Khairul Qayyum and Abdul Rifqi, the President and Vice President respectively.
The discussion session was held in an informal way so that the delegates from MPP USM and representatives from MSAJ was able to talk comfortably with each other. The session started with an introductory speech by YDP MPP USM, Muhammad ‘Ammar bin Mohd Aziz. Both parties then gave a brief explanation on the system and structure of their own association and how are work done in their association. Among the topics discussed after that were mainly about life in Japan, Japanese’s discipline and work ethics, how can we learn and apply those good values in our beloved country, Malaysia.
In conclusion, the discussion session was a success as the attendees became more aware of each other’s association and it was great pleasure getting to know them.
