Dear Maycham members and friends,


The US-China trade war is uppermost in every business person's mind. There is probably no more important and pressing matter for any business leader today than to carefully strategize and navigate his or her company's direction in the wake of the US-China trade conflict.


The Malaysian Chamber of Commerce Nasi Lemak Talk with Prof. Tan Kong Yam is a rare opportunity for you to obtain reliable information and insights from a uniquely qualified expert.


Professor Tan's standing as a world class economics expert is indisputable. Having obtained the Paul Volcker Thesis prize at Princeton University and completed his Master's and PhD degrees at Stanford University in just 3 years, he has had an illustrious career in academia and consulting at leading universities and institutions too many to mention here but are briefly listed in the Appendix. Presently, Prof. Tan is a Professor of Economics at the prestigious Nanyang Technological University.


But what makes Prof. Tan a most unique expert to listen to with regard to the US-China trade war is the impressive list of advisory roles related to China economic affairs that he was appointed to by leading governmental and academic authorities in China and Singapore, including:


  • Chief China Strategist of APS Asset Management (a fund managing over USD 3 Billion of assets) (current)
  • Senior Economist, World Bank Beijing Office (working on 11th Five year Plan jointly with China State Council (2002-2005)
  • Chief Assistant to Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister who was involved in advising China on economic development strategy between 1985-1995.
