THE TIME WHEN MALAYSIA CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL MONEY LAWYERS, AND OTHER STORIES
You are cordially invited to join the Nasi Lemak Dinner Talk on 27 May 2019 (Monday). We are pleased to have Professor Chin Leng Lim to be our speaker.
This event follows a talk in London on 2nd May at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law about Chinese projects abroad - three pipeline projects estimated to be worth between 2.3 to 2.75 billion U.S. dollars, and a rail communications project previously worth 200 billion U.S. dollars. It is a story about the risks which accompany billions along the New Silk Road and a retelling of history's lessons during the Age of American Empire from the Panama Canal to Saudi Arabian Oil.
There will be other tales - about the 1963 Malaysia Agreement, for example. For when is a "state" a "State" and what once did a man who was Prince say? "When I said federation with the Borneo Territories, I mean that they should be the same as the other states of Malaya."
What is it that Malaysian public university teachers have said about Rome to the Rulers which somehow cannot, or will not, now be shared with university students in public? And there are even more treaty stories, which now an international lawyer is asked to tell, about the International Convention on the Elimination of All…Racial Discrimination. So, this evening talk is about three "Cs" - contracts, constitutions and conventions – under a new Malaysian Government. It is about that new Government.
If you would like to know more, please join us on 27 May 2019.
