Dear Members and Friends

Many thanks to those members who responded to our recent survey on re-opening the economy and on attitudes to travel. Full aggregated data will be sent to members. Here are the key messages from the 102 people who responded to the survey:-

On re-opening the economy:-
54% agreed that a key enabler for increased levels of economic activity would be to implement community wide testing for Covid-19.
38% agreed that we need to follow a slow, phased re-opening of the economy to protect public health but
36% said we should re-open the economy fully and give seniors aged 65 and above the choice of whether or not they want to stay at home or work and volunteer.

On travel:-
66% said there is a real need to facilitate rapid testing capabilities and develop some form of widely accepted, digital certification to certify a person is free from Covid-19 for a stated validity period.
63% said they were prepared to travel for essential business purposes but need to know more about safety arrangements at airports and on flights.
26% said their business priority is for Singapore to facilitate the return of their colleagues on employment passes who have been stranded outside the country for months.

While I am on travel, our member International SOS has shared it is collaborating with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and with SGS on the development of the ICC AOK pass. This is a digital platform. It is not an immunity pass but a Covid-19 compliance framework which can work whatever the science while protecting individual data to the highest standards.

Yours faithfully
