The Harvard Business School Alumni Club of Malaysia has chosen the topic of Past, Present and Future Leadership for me to speak on tonight.  It underscores the concern of all right thinking Malaysians on the need to define and reassess the issue of leadership.

2. I would like to congratulate The Harvard Business School Alumni Club of Malaysia in promoting a discussion of this very important issue.  Additionally, I would like to thank the members of The Harvard Business School Alumni Club of Malaysia for giving me this opportunity to talk on this daunting topic.

I wish to thank Perak Academy for inviting me to launch the book, “Wang Gungwu: Junzi Scholar-Gentleman”.

It gives me added pleasure to note that Professor Wang Gungwu did his primary and secondary education at Anderson School, Ipoh, where I, too, completed my H.S.C. before proceeding to Ireland for my higher studies.

It is heartwarming for me to be at the Old Andersonians’ Club in full view of our alma mater – Anderson School, Ipoh – to launch Professor Wang’s book.

After a long journey in your political career, weathering the often rough and tumble of Malaysian politics, you somehow managed to survive and carve a popular name, an icon among your admirers and a ‘political bug’, so to speak, among your opponents.

So, you are now 70 years of age — not too young but not too old either — to go on treading the political journey.

You have consistently upheld and stood your ground on matters relating to the fundamental rights of all the rakyat, irrespective of race, to free and responsible speech, the rights to enjoy a just and fair distribution of the economic and social wealth of  the nation, and to political, judicial and legal justice.

"I wish all the rakyat, leaders and members of all political parties and all wakil rakyat a more united Malaysia in the New Year. I hope to see a common national agenda evolving in the country in pursuit of a more just, equitable and balanced prosperity for all, irrespective of race, religion and partisan political alignments."


"Saya mengucapkan selamat menyambut Tahun Baru Malaysia yang lebih bersatu dan lebih aman kepada semua rakyat dan kepada semua anggota parti-parti politik dan wakil rakyat. Saya ingin melihat wujudnya suatu agenda bersama kebangsaan Malaysia yang  merentas kepentingan dan perbezaan pendirian parti politik dalam usaha bersama kita untuk melahirkan kemakmuran yang lebih adil, saksama dan seimbang untuk semua rakyat Malaysia tidak kira kaum dan agama".

There are emotional and irrational Malay individuals, as there are non-Malay individuals, who say things that can excite ethnic emotions. When some Malay individual blurts out a comment that the Chinese or the Indians should go back to their countries of origin, that Malay individual does not represent the Malay bangsa; he or she is even condemned by the generality of the Malays.

In order to achieve national unity in a multi-racial country, the community and political leaders should restrain from making emotional statements that may be perceived as ‘racist’.”

I am disappointed that after 53 years of independence, there are still people trying to play up the racist issue.
