On 24th June our members met with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Lawrence Wong in an exceptional closed-door dialogue. During the discussion moderated by our President Damian Adams, the DPM shared his perspectives on the economy, Singapore’s Covid-19 strategy, the manpower needs of industry, Singapore’s strength as a regional hub, support for SMEs, sustainability and digitalisation. This event provided an unparalleled opportunity for members to meet the newly appointed Deputy Prime Minister.
