Merdeka Awards 2017

The Australia Malaysia Business Council SA Inc (AMBC SA) Merdeka Awards recognize outstanding international students from Malaysia. The AMBC SA acknowledges that the very strong, well established social, economic and professional links as well as the bonds of friendship forged over many years between South Australia and Malaysia, have been developed mainly through the efforts of the graduates of our higher education institutions. The purpose of the awards is to further enhance and expand relationships with Malaysia, strengthen understanding and make positive contributions of mutual benefit and co-operation to business and professional development.

The Merdeka Awards 2017 are strongly supported by key South Australian companies and organisations that have a commitment to the two way engagement between Malaysia and South Australia.

AMBC SA Business Partner Organizations generously contribute financially, and provide in-kind support because they believe that graduates will make a significant, valuable and powerful contribution to the future.
