Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Prof Jomo Kwame Sundaram is one of Asia’s most prominent economists of our time, having spent much of his career examining the challenges besetting the growth and development of emerging market economies in Asia and Africa. This, in the context of the policies practised and fomented by some of the world’s richest nations in Europe and North America.

Hailing from Penang, his journey took him from the Penang Free School in northern Malaysia to Yale and Harvard, amongst many august institutions including the UN, where he also lectured, wrote and spoke on subjects as diverse as the political economy, climate change, economic inequality and social development.

Here, he talks to Khoo Hsu Chuang about the challenges facing the world, emerging Asean and Malaysia, and what we can hope, as individuals, to do about it.
