International Collaboration with University of Tasmania

My four-day visit to the University of Tasmania (UTAS)is on the invitation of Professor Roger Willet, a senior research professor at the the School of Accounting and Corporate Governance. In November 2011, a letter of intent was signed between UTAS and UiTM for possible collaboration in research, publication, supervision and staff exchange. This visit signifies a significant initiative to illustrate committment of both entities towards executing a successful strategic alliance. For 2012, the collaboration will start with a joint research publication project focussing on the Financial Capital Markets in the Asia Pacific Region. The project will involve authors from more than twenty countries in the Asia Pacific.
