By any measure, the transformation of Singapore within a compressed timeframe from an emergent nation to a developed city state with among the highest standards of economic wellbeing, education, healthcare, infrastructure and overall quality of life, among others, surpasses all norms of economic development planning.
The factors that conspired to convert singular vision to reality are clear as Singaporeans look back and reflect, celebrate and remember; however charting ahead, new challenges are already confronting the status quo. In blueprinting the future, are there lessons and experiences, good and bad, to be drawn from Switzerland. Smaller nations by definition need to re-invent themselves continuously and reach out to the expanding opportunities overseas, while absorbing the best in terms of human resources, investing in education and training, and building infrastructural and technological sophistication in order to leapfrog to the next stage of excellence.
At this key event, we are privileged to have three outstanding individuals who will present their views on significant facets of Singapore’s future as well as discuss the challenges facing the nation, and importantly, the vast opportunities that will open up to those who venture.
This event forms part of a programme aimed to focus attention on joint initiatives between Singapore and Switzerland and our common goals as both nations look to the future.
