Malaysia clearly does not fall short when it comes to inspiring and intellectual women, and one of them is YBhg. Dato’ Sudha Devi K.R. Vasudevan.

Not only did she previously serve as Malaysia’s High Commissioner to Australia and Ambassador of Malaysia to the Federative Republic of Brazil, she also took up various diplomatic positions in Germany, Singapore and Switzerland.

And now, Dato’ Sudha is the first Malaysian and first Chair of the Commonwealth Foundation from the Asian region since the Foundation’s establishment in 1966. She received the highest votes during the election, defeating candidates from Cameroon, Kenya and Papua New Guinea, appointing her a two-year term beginning 1 January, 2021.

“Malaysia expresses its deep appreciation to Commonwealth Foundation member countries for their support in appointing Dato’ Sudha as Chair of the Commonwealth Foundation. Malaysia is committed to supporting the work of the Foundation in achieving its vision and goals and in affirming its role as a voice for the citizens of the Commonwealth,” read a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia.

As the Chair of the Commonwealth Foundation, an intergovernmental agency that is dedicated to the people’s involvement in democracy and building an equitable society, Dato’ Sudha will preside over meetings of its Board of
Governors, represent the Foundation at intergovernmental meetings and events, and serve as an ambassador for the Commonwealth Foundation to promote the Foundation’s vision and values.

They are dedicated to strengthening the people’s participation in all aspects of public dialogue and to act together and learn from each other to build better societies. They aim to also ensure that policy and government institutions are more effective contributors to development through the influence of civic voices.
