Lim Guan Eng: Penang's crusading chief minister

PENANG, Malaysia   Lim Guan Eng, chief minister of Malaysia's northern state of Penang, is invigorating the local economy through reforms and may inspire the country to set aside its protectionism to achieve sustainable growth.

     On Feb. 8, Lim was celebrating the Chinese New Year with his supporters in a meeting hall in Penang. The hall was surrounded by about 30 men carrying placards denouncing him. "It is clear they have no respect," Lim said. "If they had an issue to protest about, they could have done it at any other time."
