The Think Tank Turns Twenty

Penang Institute, which publishes Penang Monthly, turns 20 this year. Established in 1997 as the Socio-economic and Environmental Research Institute (SERI), the public think tank serves both the state and the public in turning Penang into an intellectual hub, and spurring bold thinking in the key areas of economics, socio-politics and sustainable development. For the past two decades, it has been working creatively to “Make Ideas Work”, as befits its tagline. With the new year and a new building, we take a look at the people within.
