On February 20 we welcomed ten delegates from the State Islamic University of Sunan Ampel, Indonesia (UINSA): Dr. Syamsul Huda, Vice Rector, with Dr. Sanuri, Dr. Evi Fatimatur Rusydiyah, Dr. H. Mohammad Syarief, Mr. Rahmadf Harianto, Ms. Lilik Rahmawati, Ms. Soffy Balgies, Mr. Fathin Masyhud, Mr. Moh. Ilyas Rolis, and Ms. Eva Agustina. We were very pleased to have had the opportunity to meet them here at IROAST. Following the introduction of IROAST by the Director, Professor Hiyama, and the introduction of UINSA by the Vice Rector, Dr. Huda, we exchanged ideas on how to initiate international research collaboration between UNISA and IROAST. It was quite useful for both sides to consider the nature of future research collaborations.
