Inaugural Lecture of "The International Business Review Thought Leadership Series" at the German Residence
On 21 March 2011, the German Ambassador's speech on the topic "Climate Change And Its Global Impact - Germany's Perspective" opened the series of "IBR's Thought Leadership" lectures.
40 distinguished guests, Ambassadors, High Commissioners, senior public officials and leading executives from the private sector attended the event at the German Residence to listen to ambassador Gruber's speech, exchange views and to discuss matters of global interest.
The Lecture Series was conceptualized by the International Business Review, Malaysia's leading English-medium business-to-business magazine.
The next lecture will be held in late May with H.E. Lydmila Georgievena Vorobieva, the Ambassador of the Russian Federation, speaking on "The Pitfalls of Ideology - The Dangers when Zealousness Overcomes Pragmatism".
