    Professor Liang Yingming will speak about recent events in Sino-ASEAN diplomacy. He is a retired Professor of Beijing University where he worked at the Southeast Asian Research Centre, with which he continues to have close ties. Most recently, Liang published a ground-breaking paper on the “September 30 Affair,” in which he refuted historical records that show China supported the Communist coup in 1965 to overthrow Sukarno and install the Suharto government. Not surprisingly, Prof Liang’s paper has revived debate on the incident, which chilled Sino-Indonesia relations for the next 20 years, in Indonesia’s Chinese-language media.
