The German Alumni Association Kuala Lumpur - GAAKL

The formation of the German Alumni Association, Kuala Lumpur (GAAKL) was an initiative of H.E. Juergen A. R. Staks, German Ambassador to Malaysia from 2001 - 2004.  Ambassador Staks actively pursued a closer cooperation between Germany and Malaysia, with the intention to open the Membership to the Association to individuals and corporations, sharing the same common interests.

In line with the Association’s objectives, GAAKL provides a regular meeting platform - “Treffpunkt” - for its members to meet every first or second Wednesday of each month. Prominent individuals from various backgrounds will be invited as guest speakers.
