MESSAGE FROM AUAP PRESIDENT
PROFESSOR DR. MAHMOUD NILI AHMADABADI (IRAN)

In the name of the Most High
Ladies and Gentlemen, Distinguished Guests
I am very pleased to be with you tonight and to have this opportunity to share with you my plans
for AUAP as I start my term as President of this vibrant and very active organization, the AUAP for the coming two years, 2019 and 2020.I would like to start with a brief review of the history of how AUAP was established. Prof Wichit Srisa-an , our founder who is with us tonight can testify to the fact that this organization was established at the urgings of UNESCO, as there was no such association of higher education institutions in this part of the world at that time. The Association of Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP) was founded and established by representatives of universities from countries in the Asia and Pacific regions that assembled in a conference at Suranaree University of Technology, Nakhorn Ratchasima, Thailand, on 28 July 1995 under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Wichit Srisa-an, as the Rector of Suranaree University and became the AUAP Founding President. read more...

AUAP SECOND VICE PRESIDENT

Dr. Sabur Khan
Bangladesh
Welcome to the Association of Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP).
It’s an era of globalization that integrated world knowledge, information, technology, culture and values in a single platform. Our young minds must utilize it for creating a better world and I believe that they have the potential to do so. It’s our responsibility to make a complete ecosystem for creating global citizen. Only the global citizens can utilize the power of globalization by enhancing mutual respect for all types of human beings. To make it happen there are no alternative of making educational partnership with the universities in abroad. As the 2nd Vice-President of AUAP I will keep my highest effort to promote sustainable partnership aims at creating positive impact towards our beloved world. I am fully confident that I can make it. Recalling the memory when I was the President of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industries (DCCI) in 2013 where I took an initiative for creating 2000 young entrepreneurs to solve the unemployment problem in a sustainable way. The initiative is still open since I have completed my tenure as the President. read more..
