On 3 March 2020, Chamber members participated in a closed-door dialogue session with Mr Chng Kai Fong, Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). In his opening remarks, Mr Chng gave an overview of the current Covid-19 situation and how it is affecting Singapore and the world economies.
Mr Chng also shared how important it is for Singapore to maintain a good bi-lateral ties with the US, China and other ASEAN countries. As a small country lacking in natural resources, Singapore is very much reliant on trade, and also must remain open to foreign talent and investments.
Following his remarks, Mr Chng engaged the members in a lively Q&A session covering a broad range of topics. We would like to thank Mr Chng for spending the afternoon with us and sharing his valuable insights. Many thanks also to Prudential for being the exclusive event sponsor for the 2020 SICC Distinguished Speaker Series.
We look forward to seeing everyone again at our next Distinguished Speaker Series Event on 24 March 2020 with Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources.
