Jakarta. Regional management consulting firm SRW&Co, announced the names of the 2018 Asean Global Leadership Program scholars on Tuesday.

The Asean Global Leadership Program (AGLP) scholarship was awarded to John Aung Zaw Oo of Myanmar and Saran Song of Cambodia, both winners of the 2018 Asean Business Award.

SRW&Co chairman and partner Daniel Wong congratulated the two scholars, adding that they went through a very stringent screening and interviewing process.

The Scholarship Selection Committee also took into consideration the attitude and personal qualities of the applicants in the process of submitting the application and during the interview. The scholars are required to sign a scholarship agreement with the commitment to share their insights from the AGLP with their fellow countrymen among the other obligations.

"I am proud to receive this prestigious scholarship as the first Cambodian AGLP scholar," Saran said.

"I will do my best to learn from the AGLP, and apply the knowledge and ideas to improve my company's business and to share the insights with my fellow countrymen in our mission to develop a sustainable and inclusive business by transforming the smallholder farmers into SME entrepreneurs," he added.

John Oo said he was very honored to receive the scholarship against keen competition from the other qualified applicants.

"I am really looking forward to attend the AGLP in a global business school to recharge my intellectual battery... to learn new leadership and managerial concepts and skills from the business school professors and other Asean participants...," John said.

The AGLP scholarship was launched by SRW&Co as a corporate responsibility initiative in collaboration with the Asean Business Advisory Council in 2016.

A total of seven AGLP scholars from Asean countries have been awarded the scholarship to attend AGLP in reputable global business schools. Past recipients attended the program in the University of California Berkeley Haas School of Business and New York University Stern School of Business.

The 2018 AGLP scholars John and Saran will attend the AGLP in the London School of Economics and Political Science  in March 2019, and the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in September 2019, respectively.
