About Business China
Business China was launched in November 2007 by our Founding Patron, Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and former Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Our mission is to nurture an inclusive bilingual and bicultural group of Singaporeans through extensive use of the Chinese language as the medium of communication, so as to sustain our multi-cultural heritage, and to develop a cultural and economic bridge linking the world and China.
Harnessing the support of the public sector and private enterprises, Business China aims to strengthen the ties between Singapore and China, so as to sustain and grow the global connectivity of Singapore through:
- Becoming the leading bilingual and bicultural channel for closer collaboration with China
- Establishing a widespread appreciation and acceptance of Chinese language and culture, within the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural mosaic that is fundamental to the Singapore identity
- Nurturing young Singaporeans to develop deeper links with China, engaging it in all facets including economic, business, social, cultural and educational
