You are NTU's valued stakeholders, and custodians of our past and stewards of our future."

"Tonight, it gives me great pleasure to launch our fourth overseas-based alumni association - The Nanyang Alumni Association Indonesia, right here in Jakarta. To the alumni volunteers and friends who have made this possible, I congratulate and applaud you on having attained this significant milestone; and for all the wonderful work you have done for the University. Your generosity and commitment are deeply appreciated," added Dr Su.

Mr Willy Nusantara, Advisor to the Nanyang Alumni Association Indonesia, took the opportunity to present to the guests the achievements of the association. He said: "Our alumni from Nanyang University, NTI and NTU in Indonesia are one big family under the Nanyang Alumni Association Indonesia.
