Asian Students Association

Asian Students Association

Discontent has been expressed by Auckland President, Mike Law and Lincoln President, John Hayes, on the viability of the Asian Students Association.

In a lively discussion at the Executive meeting International Vice-President Trevor Richards, argued for a transfer of the Association's Headquarters from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong.

Such a move, he argued, might increase the possibility of extending the membership beyond being "a sort of Students for Seato-type organisation".

Set up in 1969 as a loose-knit association of the National Unions including New Zealand, Australia. Ceylon, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong, the Asian Students Association will be holding its Second Conference in Hong Kong in July.

Trevor Richards has been selected as NZUSA delegate to the Conference.
