“Rihlah – Arabs in Southeast Asia” Conference 2010
Islam, Trade and Culture: The Roles of the Arabs in Southeast Asia

10 and 11 April 2010
Possibility Room, Level 5
National Library Building, 100 Victoria Street

Two centuries ago, Arab settlers travelled thousands of miles from the Arabian peninsula to Southeast Asia. They settled permanently throughout the region, particularly in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, where they played important roles in the political, economic, cultural and religious life of these countries. Today, as Singapore embraces the Middle East and the larger Arab world as one of its key trading partners, it is fitting to reflect on the influence of the Arab community of Southeast Asia.

Join our panel of international speakers as they share their insights on the roles of Arabs in Southeast Asia!
