“We have the obligation to save our Nations as Public Administrators and also correct misconceptions about China out there.”

“The IMPA program provided me a opportunities to learn more on public administrative theories and tools, public policy, leadership, problem solving and gain a better understanding of China’s reform, politic, development practice and culture. Moreover, this is a diversified program that enables me to learn on cross-culture and build the network and friendship with cross-professional participant countries and China. Hence, the connectivity and networking among the IMPA-SPPM’s alumni who are promising future next generation leaders of each country will be the core element and catalyst for promoting mutual benefit cooperation between each participant country as well as with China.”
