SMART READER® GOES GLOBAL
For years, Smart Reader® Worldwide represented a home-grown brand that has successfully expanded on wider frontiers in the international arena. The brand continues to promote quality education around the world after its successful expansion last year in Medan, Indonesia, Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, and Melbourne, Australia.
In 2017, Smart Reader® Worldwide made its first step to Australia through the launch of the Smart Reader® International Language and Enrichment Centre in Melbourne, Australia. The success of the centre was proven by the overwhelming positive feedbacks from local and foreign students in the area. This had led the opening of the first Smart Reader Kids® centre in Yarra Junction, Victoria, Australia. The early learning centre in Yarra Junction will be utilising the complete English-based Smart Reader Kids® programme, and has already received many praises from visitors who were impressed by the attractive facilities and impressive programmes in the centre.
On 21 September 2018, a momentous event had taken place as Smart Reader® Worldwide executed the Master Franchise Agreement with its new partners from China, Mr. Chen Yi and Dato Joon Ong. The new centre will be located in Wu Han, China and is expected to be launched in early 2019. Dato’ Sri Dr Richard Ong believes this move is not only a win for the brand but also for the country. “Thanks to our innovative, reliable and sustainable business plan. The international expansion will greatly contribute to the boost of Malaysia’s economic growth.”
