AASYP Newsletter

Welcome back to the AASYP Newsletter.

In this issue, we look at the latest news and dive deeper into regional challenges. As always, we'll also bring you opportunities and inspiration to help motivate you to make the most of this year.

This month has been full of election results with Australia and the Phillipines heading to the polls. Indonesia and Thailand also officially announced the outcomes of their elections that were held earlier in the year.

We have also welcomed a number of new members to our team this month and are looking forward to engaging with you throughout the year!

Sincerely, the AASYP team.
