Dear Members and Friends

The Distinguished Speaker Series is your Chamber’s Flagship Event Series. We curate prominent speakers to engage members on topical business issues in closed-door dialogues. These dialogues are member-exclusive and a very good reason why all our non-member friends should join the Chamber!

I am very happy to announce this year’s Distinguished Speakers:

  • 19 February, Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade & Industry
  • 15 March, Dr. Beh Swan Gin, Chairman, Economic Development Board
  • 22 August, Dr. Koh Poh Koon, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry
  • 27 September, Mr. Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education
  • Date TBC, Mr. Ravi Menon, Managing Director, Monetary Authority of Singapore

I want to thank your fellow member Prudential Assurance Company Singapore for its generous support as Exclusive Event Sponsor of the 2019 SICC Distinguished Speaker Series. Prudential’s support allows us to host our Distinguished Speakers in appropriate venues.

I encourage all members to take advantage of these opportunities to engage and exchange ideas and views. Register here for the first dialogue in the series which will take place on 19 February with Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade and Industry.

With my thanks and warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
