  Another point on our global alumni map - Thailand  

The launch of our Thailand chapter on 17 May was keenly celebrated by 80 NTU alumni and guests in Bangkok.

Held at the Swissôtel Le Concorde Bangkok, the occasion also served as an alumni get-together for NTU alumni based in Thailand. Guest-of-honour Mr Anthony Teo, Secretary to the University officiated at the launch ceremony, which was also attended by His Excellency Mr Peter Chan, Singapore's Ambassador to Thailand.

Mr Anthony Teo spoke on the importance of building long-standing relationships among global alumni. He said: "This gathering tonight is very special as we set up this new chapter in Thailand which plays a very important role. We believe that a strong university must have strong alumni. Strong alumni together with other stakeholders will build a great global university we all aspire to be."

"To our alumni volunteers and friends, who make it possible, to set up this Alumni Association, this evening is a significant milestone. You complement the work of the university and you will provide an avenue for alumni in Thailand to connect more deeply with the developments at NTU," he added.

Heading the newly formed Thailand Chapter is Dr Nurot Panich who graduated from the School of Materials Science and Engineering and is currently working in Bangkok as a Regional Sales Manager. Dr Panich and his committee members who have volunteered to hold different positions in the Association were introduced to the attendees.

Said Dr Panich: "The Alumni Association is an extension of the University and the relationship is very special. The Association would greatly cultivate and strengthen long-standing relationship between the University and its alumni. Thus we are one of the important pillars of strength to the University and hence by forming an association we become stronger and make the University stronger as well."

"I urge for your very strong support in participating to interestingly forthcoming events which the newly formed NTU Alumni Association (Thailand) may organise. Together, we shall maintain the ties which we have built during our days at NTU and continue to establish the very special bond," he added.

The alumni present at the dinner were pleased to be part of the NTU community and gave their fullest support to the newly formed Association. They appreciated the opportunity to foster closer relationships among themselves and with their alma mater; and spent the evening networking with fellow alumni and guests.
