This is the seventeenth of the Perdana Discourse Series, following a successful debut in 2004 on “National Unity”. Jointly organised by Perdana Leadership Foundation and IMPAK of UiTM and sponsored by Proton, the Perdana Discourse Series is a semi-structured communication platform where a prominent presenter will speak to selected clusters of audience on a pre-determined topic, addressing its definition and tracing issues like policies, strategies and possible models used during the tenure of the past Prime Ministers. Discussions and issues arising from the discourse will be documented and mapped. The keynote address will be followed by a moderated discussion session by experts from related fields. A monograph will be published following each programme in the series.
