Speech by Dr. Ong Kian Ming. Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) at the 116th Birthday of Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-haj and the 9th Anniversary of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS)
- Before I begin, I would like to make a few disclaimers. I was formerly a member of the IDEAS Council back in 2013, when I was still a backbencher and still in the opposition. I have been a keen observer and supporter of the work which IDEAS has done over the past 9 years in advancing ideas of liberty, freedom and institutional reform.
