CEO's Message

Dear Shareholders,

When Raffles Design Institute was first established in Singapore in 1990, it was symbolic of an empty loom, set up in readiness to weave a tapestry of educational institutions across multiple regions. Just as in weaving with yarn, working with colours and fabrics to form beautiful designs, the RafflesEducationCorp tapestry has evolved into a colourful pattern of educational institutions across the Asia-Pacific. Today, RafflesEducationCorp operates 30 colleges in 29 cities across 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific: Australia, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Every year, more than 20,000 students are enrolled in our tertiary programmes, benefitting from a quality education that provides graduates with a well-rounded hands-on experience relevant to the industry. Weaving involves an intricate three-step process that harnesses the different yarns tightly together into a secure pattern of colours, which forms the intended design when the tapestry is completed. Likewise at RafflesEducationCorp, we have been weaving in related businesses - adding the Management of Education Assets and Facilities and the Education-Linked Real Estate Investment and Development to strengthen our core business as a Premier Education Provider. RafflesEducationCorp has morphed into a business with three related growth engines.
