ASLI-CPPS 50th Merdeka Anniversary Nation Building Dialogue


The Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute and the ASLI Centre for Public Policy Studies will be jointly organizing the ASLI-CPPS 50TH Merdeka Anniversary Nation Building Dialogue on 30th August 2007, at the Multi-Purpose Hall, Sunway University College, Bandar Sunway at 9.30am.
Former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed and Former President of Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) and Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia (Gerakan), Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu will be sharing some of their experiences, struggles and lessons of the past together with other key individuals who have been specially invited in light of their expertise to share their respective experiences.

The main objective of this Dialogue will be to discuss the experiences and lessons from the past learnt in the process of nation building, especially as Malaysia celebrates its 50th year of Independence. In celebrating the nation’s achievements and successes, struggles and challenges experienced must also be remembered and retold. Key issues covered will be on building a united Malaysian nation, discussing the social contract, history and formulation of the Malaysian Constitution, inter-ethnic and inter-religious harmony and other key events that have shaped our nation to what it is today.

Other distinguished panelists at the Nation Building Dialogue will be Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Simon Sipaun, Vice-Chairman of SUHAKAM and Former Sabah State Secretary, Toh Puan Uma Sambanthan, wife of former MIC President, Tun V T Sambanthan, Dr Chandra Muzaffar, President of International Movement for a JUST World, Ms. Ambiga Sreenevasan, President of the Malaysian Bar Council and Reverend Dr Hermen Shastri, Secretary-General of the Malaysian Council of Churches.

The Dialogue will provide a forum for all Malaysians to openly engage in an ongoing dialogue on the nation building process. Representatives from the Government, private sector, non-governmental organizations, and key decision makers are invited to participate in this discussion. Arising from the presentations and discussions, we are hopeful that participants will go away with a better understanding of Malaysia’s journey, and more importantly where it seeks to go from here, taking into consideration the critical concerns and problems faced.
