20 March- This Tuesday's Study Session was a little different than usual. Instead of having a study session, ISDEV played host to 32 visitors from UPMI, Medan, Indonesia. The entourage comprised of 28 students and lecturers, led by UPMI Rector Ali Mukti. ISDEV Director, Professor Muhammad Syukri Salleh gave his welcoming remarks, followed by a little talk on "Amalgamating Strategy between Districts within the Public Service Effectiveness and Efficiency Framework" by Dr. H. Didin Muhafidin, UPMI's Head of the Public Administration Master's Programme.
