Mr Lim Hng Kiang, Minister for Trade and Industry (Trade) was our guest speaker on 12 May 2017. In his opening remarks, Minister Lim shared that Singapore has adopted a consistent and deliberate strategy to remain open and connected. This has opened up new opportunities for our companies and also helped us to continue to attract a steady pipeline of investments. He further elaborated how the Industry Transformation Maps which have been rolled out can help companies cope with challenges in this rapid-changing economic climate.

During the Q&A, the Minister commented on a variety of topics raised by members, including the ASEAN Economic Community and Free Trade Agreements for Asia Pacific. He also urged companies to form consortiums and partner with other companies in order to scale up.

The Chamber would like to thank Minister Lim for spending the afternoon with us and sharing his candid insights. Many thanks to all members for participating in the dialogue as well. The next Distinguished Speaker Series takes place on 5 July 2017 and our guest speaker is Dr Maliki Osman, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence & Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Mayor, South East CDC.
