Tan Sri Tiong Hiew King: Starting with new thinking, removing obstructions for Asia Pacific cooperation

On 4 October 2010, Tan Sri Tiong Hiew King, Co-Chairman of APECF and Executive Chairman of Rimbunan Hijau Group and Shihua Media Group hosted the APECF delegation to Malaysia in Putrajaya Marriot Hotel.

He delivered an address during the luncheon, in which he said: “Some professors and experts have pointed out that people should get rid of prejudice and break the constraints in order to realize global integration and development.” In his opinion, although conflicts and weaknesses exist in regional cooperation, they can be conquered if people are bold enough to explore, draw a blue print and establish a norm for Asia Pacific cooperation with brand new thinking.
