We are delighted to feature on the panel well-respected experts Taimur Baig, Managing Director and Chief Economist (Group Research) of DBS Bank, Selena Ling, Chief Economist & Head of Treasury Research & Strategy at OCBC Bank, and Ravi Prasad, Senior Economic Adviser at the British High Commission in Singapore.
