"I believe that the alumni of UIII can strengthen the network, not only among the alumni but also among the scholars who are concerned about international relations and how we can anticipate the world's future in many parts of the world. All the best, and we are so proud to have all of you, UIII students here in Bogor," stated Bima Arya.
