Bill Clinton to Give Lecture in Malaysia

It a lot of good events coming out in Malaysia, and best of all, all these event are free. Below is a events I saw on The Star Newspaper. So for those who interested please register fast.

KUALA LUMPUR: Former US president Bill Clinton will make his first trip to Malaysia to deliver the inaugural BC Sekhar memorial lecture on Dec 6.

And the good news is the lecture is open to the public, not just politicians and business leaders.

Petra Group founder Datuk Vinod Sekhar, who had invited Clinton to Malaysia, said any interested member of the public who wants to hear the lecture would be able to do so.

“We want to give everyone the opportunity. Clinton is a visionary leader and an inspiration to millions,” Vinod told reporters at a press conference here yesterday.

He asked those interested to send an e-mail to clintonlecture@petragroup.net after 1pm today with their name, address, contact number and identity card number. Applications sent before 1pm will not be considered.

“The venue for the luncheon lecture will be decided depending on the response. Everyone has an equal chance of attending and tickets are free.”

The lecture is being organised by the Sekhar Foundation with the support of the Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute.

Clinton, who will be in Kuala Lumpur immediately after the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in Hong Kong, will also be awarded the BC Sekhar Medal for Transformational Leader­ship.

Vinod said the new award would be given annually to individuals who have demonstrated a lifetime of commitment to bringing about positive and practical change to the world.

He added that Clinton would be in town for about two days and was not sure whether Senator Hillary Clinton would be coming along.

“She indicated that she was keen but now with the situation in the US after the Democratic win, I think she would be busy taking care of what is happening there.”

Clinton said in a statement that he was honoured to visit Malaysia for the first time and that he looked forward to meeting Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
