Baguio City was abuzz with excitement on February 02, 2024, as ASIST actively participated in the Global Heights Education Fair-Networking Dinner. This significant event, organized by Global Heights Consulting Agency in collaboration with CHED-CAR, brought together representatives from CAR-HEIs, CAIRO Officers and members, and esteemed guests from Australian higher education institutions.

The evening commenced with opening messages from CHED-CAR Director Demetrio P. Anduyan Jr, who expressed pride in the international recognition and accomplishments of CAR-HEIs in academic pursuits, research, innovation, and culture. He symbolically linked the opening of the Panagbenga Festival, the bloom season festival in Baguio City, to the potential blossoming partnerships between CAR-HEIs and Australian counterparts.

Australian delegates took the stage to share insights and perspectives through various presentations, fostering a mutual understanding of the educational landscapes between the Philippines and Australia. The networking session provided ASIST delegates a valuable opportunity to discuss the institution with Australian HEIs, emphasizing areas such as Agriculture, Agri-Business & Cooperative Management, Engineering & Automation, and Information Technology.

In alignment with Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) - Quality Education, the event exemplified the commitment to fostering global collaboration in education, ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education for all. Moreover, the emphasis on networking aligns with SDG 17 - Partnerships for the Goals, acknowledging the crucial role of collaboration in achieving sustainable development objectives.

As the dinner drew to a close, Melbourne Metropolitan College CEO Hemi Hossain expressed gratitude to the CAR-HEI attendees, expressing hope that the connections forged during the event would blossom into robust partnerships between institutions. The Global Heights Education Fair-Networking Dinner served as a beacon for international cooperation, echoing the spirit of SDGs 4 and 17 and driving positive change in the realm of education and beyond.
