OVERVIEW
For the last decade, Australia has emerged as one of the most stable and vibrant economies in the Asia-Pacific. Economic success and a world-class education system have made Australia an attractive destination for investment, trade and emigration, which essentially translate into a higher density of interaction between Australia and Asia and beyond. Australia’s tradition and respect for inclusion, acceptance and diversity encourages and fosters multiculturalism. Major cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Perth have fast become a melting pot of diverse cultures, religions and ethnicities, and Australia may soon lay claim to the distinction of being a truly Asian-Pacific country. Mr Aly will draw from his experience in sharing his perspectives on multiculturalism in Australia and explore the opportunities that Australia could harness to foster regional linkages through its diverse and multicultural population.

http://english.astroawani.com/videos/live

Synopsis: After more than four decades of conflict in southern Mindanao, peace is within reach. On 15th October 2012, the Philippine government signed a framework agreement with Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)that made way for the creation of Bangsamoro, a new autonomous political entity.

This gives rise to hope an end to the longstanding conflict but the peace process is susceptible to a relapse if the framework does not bring immediate and tangible change on the ground.

Cynthia Ng talks to Murad Ebrahim, Chairman of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) & Tengku Datuk Abdul Ghafar Tengku Mohamed, the Malaysian facilitator in the Mindanao Peace Process.
