The highlight of the activity was the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between ASPAP and Transparency International-Taiwan and between ASPAP and Taiwan Association for Schools of Public Administration and Affairs (TASPAA) which aims to foster more collaboration and cooperation among the various universities in the Philippines and Taiwan.
