Mar 30th 2010 Growth, Distribution and the NEP (New Ecomomic Policy)

Malaysia Forum London has the privilege of linking up to the Harapan conference being hosted by our colleagues in the Northeast of America where KS Jomo will be speaking on a subject that is close to the heart of all Malaysians now working or studying abroad.

Date: Saturday, 03 April 2010
Time: 15:30 – 17:30
Location: Flat 46 Bickenhall Mansions, Bickenhall St London W1U 6 BR

It will be timely to hear one of Malaysia’s greatest economic minds speak to us on the NEP and perhaps find out what the NEM (New Economic Model) might or might not address with regards to not just the economic future of Malaysia, but also the social and political. As we know, this issue is a heated one and will have potential ramifications across various facets of Malaysian life.

Jomo is currently serving as the United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

Jomo is widely perceived to be an outspoken intellectual, with unorthodox non-partisan views. During the Asian financial crisis in 1997-98, Jomo was one of the earliest advocates of capital control measures, which then Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad eventually introduced to curb excessive currency speculation. However, when Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was imprisoned without trial under the Internal Security Act soon after and sacked as Mahathir’s deputy, Jomo publicly condemned the move.

Feel free to invite your friends as well as we hope to make this a dinner event with some simple food and drinks. Please RSVP here if possible. Otherwise, please send an e-mail to 232877 at soas dot ac dot uk.
