I am not making it up. That’s what it says in Taib Mahmud’s biography on the Oxford University website.
And since Oxford University – that centre of academic excellence and rigorous research – says so, it has got to be true, right?
Get to know the Chief Minister of Sarawak up close and personal. Read the bio here.
Did you know that he wrote a piece titled ‘Appropriate Strategy for Developing Countries in a Period of Resource Scarcity’? No doubt leaders of other developing countries will be able to pick up many useful tips.
I particularly like the bit where it says:
His leadership has transformed Sarawak from a poor and backward State to one of the most progressive state in the country now. Generally, the people are enjoying five times better standard of living as compared to that in the early years of Independence. … Indisputably, Pehin Sri Abdul Taib is the architect of modern Sarawak.
You’ve got to hand it to those brainy folks at Oxford. They obviously know a successful leader when they see one. Welcome to the Said Business School.
