Raymond would like to continue the effort of the outgoing council to foster better relations with the Malaysian community in Victoria, especially with the Malaysian Student Organisations (MSOs) and other affiliates to achieve a common understanding and goal, moving forward. He strongly believes in the notion that only when the MSOs are strong, MASCA Victoria will be able to go that extra mile. The incoming council hopes to provide a platform for the Malaysian students in Victoria to grow and develop as leaders in their own right, by organising or partaking in any of MASCA Victoria's value-adding events.
The outgoing council shares the same aims and thus, we would like to express our utmost confidence in the incoming council in carrying the Malaysian torch even higher than we have.
The MASCA Victoria outgoing council of 2012/2013, led by the outgoing Chairperson Aina Lim, would like to express our utmost appreciation and gratitude to the Malaysian and international student community, including our friends from ASEAN-member student councils for supporting MASCA Victoria's events and activities. On that note, we would also like to give special thanks to our affiliates for allowing us the opportunity to serve the Malaysian student community in Australia. We wish our successors all the best in the fulfilling journey ahead!
