About Khazanah Global Lectures (KGL)
As the nation’s strategic investment fund that strives to create sustainable value for a globally competitive Malaysia, Khazanah’s mandate is to promote economic growth by making strategic investments and divestments, driving corporate performance with the right human capital and ethics.
As part of this remit, Khazanah organised a series of knowledge capacity building events, the ‘Khazanah Merdeka Series’ – launched in 2007 in celebration of Malaysia’s 50 years of independence. One of the components of this has been the Khazanah Global Lectures (KGL).
KGL features global thought leaders who have influenced the way people live, work and think. The main objective of KGL is knowledge sharing with world class intellects, technocrats and business leaders. KGL speakers share their experience and ideas on international, economic, social and
corporate development issues, while taking into consideration Malaysia’s past, present and future direction.
In the past, a key component of the KGL had been the live broadcast of the lectures to universities across the nation, ensuring a wide reach particularly among the younger generation and future leaders of Malaysia. Since 2016, the lecture is streamed live worldwide through the KGL website.
