On his recent SE Asian tour, Colin Archer spoke at an informal meeting in Kuala Lumpur on the theme of military spending, comvened by our GDAMS partner SUARAM and its founder Kua Kia Soong (3rd from left), a former colleague from Manchester days, back in the 1980s! “I spoke about IPB’s work on this topic and referred to both corruption in arms deals worldwide and efforts to control the trade and reduce military spending. Soong gave a detailed presentation of the Malaysian situation based on his book Questioning Arms Spending in Malaysia.”
