Dr. Mohamad Ghozali Bin Hasan, the INASIS Proton principal, who was the guest of honour for the night, in his opening remarks also concurred on the importance of solidarity among the members and this can be achieved through better understanding of each other cultural existence and uniqueness. Thus, the event provided the best platform to achieve such noble aim.

The slot that stole the night was the cultural dress segment where ‘models’ from a host of countries awed guests in attendance with colorful costumes and witty performances. Countries represented were from Nigeria, Indonesia, Pakistan, Yemen, Japan, China, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Iraq, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. This segment was hosted by Sannan Khan, Wajiha Kanwal and Sundus Mustaqeem and they literally brought the house down with their antics and jokes.
