Location: Westin Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

THE INAUGURAL LECTURE by YAB DATO SERI ABDULLAH AHMAD BADAWI, PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA

61

The Women’s Institute of Management is a Non Profit NGO and will organize The Dato Seri Abdullah Badawi Lecture on an annual basis, alternating with an eminent Malaysian speaker, followed by an eminent international speaker for next year. These lectures will be an effective platform for WIM to receive and give Knowledge, and Knowledge does not come cheap. All developed countries especially Japan and Germany, spend at least one fifth of their Gross National Product on the production and dissemination of Knowledge.

The Women’s Institute of Management will distribute the text of these lectures to Universities, NGOs, relevant Government ministries and agencies, the Media and others to encourage studies, brainstorming discussions, dialogue and other intellectual exercises.

The full text of the inaugural event citation, welcome speech and lecture and available in our “articles of interest”.
