ABOUT THE EVENT

The diverse economic fabric of ASEAN presents promising prospects to spur its growth as the third-largest combined market in Asia. With emerging Southeast Asian economies growing up to 7%, Singapore businesses will be shifting their focus from bigger markets to areas closer to home.

Join us at this year's forum to discover why and how ASEAN can provide new opportunities and business ties to counter against slowing growth of the China market, populism in Europe, and protectionist policies in the United States. 

 

GUEST-OF-HONOUR

Mr Chan Chun Sing
Minister for Trade and Industry

SPECIAL SPEAKER

Mr Liew Mun Leong
Chairman, Surbana Jurong Private Limited
Chairman, Changi Airport Group

Infrastructure & connectivity between ASEAN countries & how it affects the economies
From the development economics standpoint, ASEAN countries could expand its economic growth through further urbanisation and infrastructure development. Unlike other regional continental economies like Europe, North America and China, ASEAN’s geography is widely dispersed. More can be done to improve its infrastructure to beef up member countries' connectivity within the region and globally, especially through aviation.
