Our guest speaker for the Distinguished Speaker Series on 5 July was Dr Maliki Osman, Senior Minister of State for Defence. In his keynote remarks, Dr Maliki addressed the current security threats around the world and in the region and shared his thoughts on how businesses play a crucial role in safeguarding Singapore’s peace and national security. Dr Maliki also elaborated on the National Service (NS) Mark Accreditation Scheme, which recognises the support from businesses and employers towards NS.
In conjunction with NS50, companies also declared their support for NS by signing the NS Mark Declaration of Support during the event. This was a symbolic moment as the SICC community collectively pledged our commitment to stand behind our civilian soldiers as they preserve and protect the peace and stability of our nation. The declarations were then individually presented by Dr Maliki to the representatives of all participating companies.
We would like to thank Dr Maliki for taking time to share his insights with us and all attendees for participating in this important dialogue. The next Distinguished Speaker Series event takes place on 7 September 2017 and our guest speaker is Mr Piyush Gupta, CEO and Director of DBS Group.
