On August 9, 1965, Singapore became an independent and sovereign democratic nation. Since it’s founding, Singapore has grown into a standard-bearer of modern development. The city-state is a multi-cultural global hub of commerce, technology, finance and transportation.
As part of a year-long celebration of its 50 year anniversary, the Beyond SG50 Forum explored pathways of innovation in technology and the global supply chain that have positioned the country as a leader since. The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Manpower both were in attendance, putting particular focus on the importance of human capital. From that platform, the conference explored what corporations need to do to sustain a peaceful and prosperous Singapore, and an increasingly collaborative global marketplace.
