We are privileged to partner with the ACU in hosting the 4th Commonwealth Summer School and we hope that everyone who participated and involved have had a great experience throughout the programme. We further hope that the time spent in Malaysia has allowed the delegates to engage with the people, the country and the global food security issues at hand, and to take back knowledge and connections that will help them thrive.
