Issue 234, 5 Mar 2019
Dear Members and Friends

Last Saturday I attended the launch of SG Cares 2019. One highlight was printed panels featuring the history of caring and giving by Singapore’s oldest organizations including your Chamber. Click here to read the SICC panel text. Each panel contains a story of care in augmented reality. Download the free SG Cares app on your phone or tablet and explore. These stories should inspire you in your personal and corporate giving activities in 2019. Each dollar you raise will be matched by the government’s SGD 200 million Bicentennial Community Fund.

Moving on to my event recommendation for this issue, I recommend you consider attending our next Innovation Series Event. On 26 March, fellow member SATS will share the latest e-commerce trends and opportunities in Asia. SATS will cover how you can successfully take advantage of the many business opportunities which e-commerce facilitates by leveraging technology and managing the risks. This is a must-attend for all of you who want to ride the e-commerce wave. Register now.

With my thanks and warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
