I obtained my PhD from Lancaster University (UK) in 1970. International Economics is my forte. I held the Chair of Analytical Economics at the University of Malaya from 1980 till 1997 and also served as the Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Administration, University of Malaya, in the 1980s and 1990s. I was the Executive Director of the Malaysian Institute of Economic Research (MIER), a leading independent think tank, during 1997-2009. I am currently with INCEIF as Professor since 2011. I sit on the Editorial Board of Asian Economic Policy Review (AEPR), an ISI-listed journal published by the Japan Center for Economic Research (JCER), and also serve as a Correspondent Editor of Asia-Pacific Economic Literature (APEL) of the Australisan National University (ANU), and an Associate Editor of Institutions and Economies from University of Malaya.
