Scot­tish-born Amer­i­can fi­nan­cial jour­nal­ist and au­thor Ber­tie Charles Forbes and his as­so­ciate Walter Drey, then Gen­eral Man­ager of the Mag­a­zine of Wall Street, set up Forbes mag­a­zine on Septem­ber 15, 1917. So, to her­ald the 99th an­niver­sary of the most pow­er­ful busi­ness mag­a­zine brand in the world, Forbes In­done­sia threw an An­nual Pri­vate Din­ner en­ti­tled “Cel­e­brat­ing 99 Years of Forbes” on Septem­ber 1 at The Nu­san­tara Room at the Dhar­mawangsa Jakarta. Host­ing this very exclusive event—and to honour those rare in­di­vid­u­als who have graced the mag­a­zine’s cover over the past six years and a se­lect group of VVIP in­vi­tees—were Prof. Dr. Dato’ Sri Tahir MBA, Chair­man of Maya­pada Group, and Mrs Maria Luk­ito, Vice Pres­i­dent Com­mis­sioner of Forbes In­done­sia. An in­spir­ing speech by ­guest-

of­­honour Steve Forbes, who flew in all the way from New Jer­sey es­pe­cially for this event, guided the crowd to a lav­ish menu of Lemon­grass Cured Salmon, Warm Onion Con­sommé, An­gus Beef Ten­der­loin and Dul­cey Cho­co­late Mousse. A harp and pi­ano duet en­livened the black-tie hap­pen­ing with a pot­pourri of ever­green melodies.
