  • Message from Australian Ambassador Rod Smith

    Congratulations on the launch of the enhanced Philippines Australia Alumni Association (PA3i) website. I hope that this web portal will be a useful tool in broadening your reach and encouraging alumni from Australian universities, including our short term training recipients, to become active members of PA3i. You have returned to the Philippines with a renewed interest and commitment to the development of your country. PA3i action and activism reinforces the Australian Government’s investment in strengthening human and organisational capacities of key Philippine institutions. By matching PA3i’s expertise and drive with more robust Philippine institutions we can together address eom key development challenges confronting the Philippines. This website showcases PA3i’s strong commitment to support such a development-focused organisation. I encourage you to update this website and use it frequently to pursue better development outcomes for the Philippines. You have also returned to the Philippines as beneficiaries of the quality education on offer at Australia’s universities. As ambassadors of the virtues of Australian education, PA3i members are well positioned to forge better people-to-people links between our two countries. I encourage you to use this website to promote the quality of Australian higher education. Your personal and professional experiences, shared through this website, will help inspire more Filipinos to pursue the same experiences – that of world-class academic standards, exposure to a multi-cultural environment, networking opportunities, life in another country and, best of all, the opportunity to contribute to Philippines’ development.’ Mabuhay! H.E. Amb. Rod Smith Australian Ambassador to the Philippines (2008-2011)
