'New silk roads and new citadels: the dragon, the crescent and the mousedeer'


Tan Sri A. Mokhtar

Azman Mokhtar’s lecture will give an investment practitioner's perspective on China in an era of new trade routes and new trade walls, with special emphasis from the Islamic world and South East Asia.  The lecture will be followed by Q&A.
