Malaysia PM
During UN Week in NY, it was a delight to hear Singapore's Foreign Affairs Minister Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan speak at the Asia Society about the digital revolution, trade policies and a new paradigm underscoring the importance of data over  land and capital as power indicators. Also a pleasure to hear Malaysia PM Dr. Mahathir talk about his comeback at 93 years of age, and his country's progress and challenges, with Kevin Rudd of the Asia Society Policy Institute.
