Dr Shahir leads in the research project in the CLMV countries.

The Centre for Islamic Development Management Studies (ISDEV) Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) is scheduled to conduct its research on 'Islamic Leadership in Service Management' in Vietnam on 28 May 2016.

The research leader, Dr. Shahir Akram Hassan said the research is carried out under education marketing program to a few nearby countries such as in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam (or CLMV) organized by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia (MOHE).

"The purpose of this research is to enable Malaysia to offer its expertise and experience to regional countries and other developing countries in terms of research, learning and teaching, community networks and student mobility, quality assurance and leadership".

"This is the first time that USM is participating in the research under this program and that our focus is on leadership in Vietnam as it has now become a tourist attraction as a shopping heaven, especially in Ho Chi Minh city," he said.

He also explained that the offer will remain open to research teams to proceed to the next phase, depending on the effectiveness of the current research projects that are held in the CLMV countries.

"For starters, there are indeed some challenges faced because it was our first experience in a research project with these CLMV countries. But we believe it can be resolved upon arrival in Vietnam later," he explained.
