Tun Musa Hitam: Building Bridges Through Business
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This is a critical moment for the world. Powerful current of economics, finance, religion, population, science and culture threaten to pull us apart, but at the same time offer the opportunity to build the bridges that can forge bonds between nations. The continuing aftermath of the credit crunch in much of the world, challenges of income inquality, and finite resources, make it ever more important to cooperate if the 21st Century is to be as transformative for the human race as the 20th was. For nearly a decade, the World Islamic Economic Forum has been contributing to these debates, helping to build bridges between worlds. But although many Western business people and leaders have attended, we've always met in nations from the Islamic world. This year, we decided that the time had come to meet in the West, to bring our message that there is more that unites the nations than divides them, to a non-Muslim country for the first time.

What good will Najib’s panel do?
Free Malaysia Today - almost 5 years
PETALING JAYA: The government has promised to set up an independent panel to investigate allegations of police brutality during last Saturday’s Bersih rally, but opinion leaders are asking: Who will be the panellists, and is there any point in having the inquiry? One issue that keeps cropping up is that public confidence in open inquiries is at an all time low. Among the most critical of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s announcement yesterday was Lim Teck Ghee, who said it was an an election ploy. “On the one hand, Najib concludes that Bersih is an attempt to overthrow the government. The next moment he says we’ll have an independent panel. It is clearly political since the election is coming, and he is not sincere at all,” said Lim, who heads the Centre for Policy Initiatives. The Malaysian experience with royal commissions of inquiry and other so-called independent panels was that the odds were stacked in the government’s favour, he said. “It won’t be independent and would ...
