Wholesale Trade ITM Launch: “Digitalisation of Trade—New Mindsets, New Skillsets”

Digitalisation has significantly transformed trade today, with its potential benefits and associated risks. As such, International Enterprise (IE) Singapore has collaborated with partners from both the public and private sectors in designing the Wholesale Trade Industry Transformation Map (WST ITM). The theme for our event is “Digitalisation of Trade—New Mindsets, New Skillsets”. We would like to extend our invite to companies as it is an excellent platform for them to learn more about the changing demands of the WST sector, thereby allowing them to capture new business opportunities.
 
Why you should attend?

  • Hear from Minister S Iswaran (Minister for Trade and Industry) on the plans to transform the sector
  • Network with IE's strategic partners SBF, SMU, SUSS and Ngee Ann Polytechnic present at the event
  • Hear from industry experts like Luxasia, NTUC and SMU on how digitalization is growing cross-border businesses and, also the emerging skillsets needed for the WST sector
