Wong Chun Wai: KSI lifetime achievement award a tribute to colleagues, The Star

GEORGE TOWN: Receiving the KSI Strategic Institute For Asia Pacific (KSI) lifetime achievement award is a tribute to colleagues and The Star, says Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai.

The Star Media Group advisor - who is one of the award's four recipients - said that the award is more than a personal tribute.

"The award recognises the professional support and cooperation my colleagues in The Star have provided during my career with the company. It is timely as The Star is celebrating its 50th anniversary," said Wong.

“The Star was born in Penang, like me,” he added.

Wong is currently an adjunct professor at UKM’s Social Sciences and Humanities Faculty, where he conducts lectures.

The other recipients were Farlim Group Tan Sri Lim Gait Tong, Aspen (Group) Holding Limited executive deputy chairman Datuk Seri Nazir Ariff, and Penang Heritage Trust vice-president Khoo Salma Nasution.

Yang Di-Pertua Negri Tun Ahmad Fuzi Abdul Razak presented the awards at the Penang Future Forward Summit forum organised by KSI, Wawasan Open University (WOU), and Malaysia International Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MICCI).

Among the VIPs present were KSI president Tan Sri Michael Yeoh, MICCI chairman Michael Crombrugge, and WOU chairman Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon.
