This site was the official blog of Kian-Ping Lim when he served as the Deputy Dean (Research & Innovation) at the Labuan School of International Business and Finance (LSIBF), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). During his term, the blog reported research activities and publications by staffs and graduate students at his school.
