The event, held at Kampung Sawah Sunggala, Port Dickson, was launched by the Coordinator of the Negeri Sembilan State Legislative Assembly (DUN), Tuan Rusli Abdullah.
Programme director, Dinie Najihah Din, said that the event aimed at enhancing and exposing students to programme management and at the same time foster their leadership skills in event organisation.
