What is ARM?
ARM is the abbreviation for Aspirasi Rakyat Malaysia. We are part of the Malaysian Aspiration Program (MAP), the intellectual arm of MASCA Victoria.
We organise round table discussions ("perbincangan meja bulat") to promote interaction and the exchange of ideas between members of the Malaysian community, including students and residents in Victoria. It is a platform for everyone to voice their opinions, proposals, stories, suggestions and views on pressing issues and challenges faced by Malaysia. Most importantly, participants can share their aspiration for Malaysia.
