Distinguished Speaker Series: Minister S Iswaran
1 October 2020 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
It was a real pleasure to host Mr. S Iswaran, Minister for Communications and Information and Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations yesterday. The Minister was our 4th Distinguished Speaker this year. The focus of the Minister’s address was how Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) benefit Singapore-based companies. Singapore’s wide network of FTAs has attracted global investors to the country, creating new and diverse job opportunities. It has also ensured that essential supplies are available to Singapore even during the pandemic.
The Minister shared that Singapore is establishing a network of Digital Economy Agreements (DEAs) to facilitate seamless digital trade and provide a trustworthy digital system for businesses. All of these are necessary to enable the expansion of e-commerce across the region and to play a role in achieving more inclusive growth for the best of societal reasons.
We would like to thank the Minister for spending the afternoon with us and the participants who contributed to a constructive Q & A session. Special thanks to our Exclusive Event Sponsor Prudential for its generous support.
We look forward to seeing everyone again at our next Distinguished Speaker Series event on 16 October with Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade and Industry.
