  30 September 2006- Symposium on “Southeast Asian Chinese Culture in an Era of Globalization”

Chinese Heritage Centre and Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry have invited distinguished scholars from Singapore and around the region to examine the cultural and social changes of Southeast Asian Chinese in this globalizing era. The symposium was divided into two main segments, consisting of a series of lectures and a discussion panel. Lectures presented covered topics such as the current situation, the impact of New Migrants on the regional culture, influences of globalization on Malaysian Chinese Culture, and the spread of Islam among Southeast Asia ’s Chinese. The peaceful rise of China as an economic power impacted Chinese education in the region. This was examined through an interactive format in the second segment. This interactive format allowed us to examine the situations of Indonesia , Malaysia , the Philippines and Singapore in greater details. Distinguished educationists from these areas gave a brief introduction of their country before engaging the audiences with the discussions.
