FutureChina Global Forum® and Singapore Regional Business Forum® 2018
The FutureChina Global Forum (FCGF®) and Singapore Regional Business Forum (SRBF®) 2018 is jointly organised by Business China Singapore and the Singapore Business Federation, which will offer top private and public sector leaders a premier platform to exchange insights, engage in high-level networking and to generate a pipeline of collaborative opportunities.
The FutureChina Global Forum (FCGF®) was created by Business China Singapore in 2010 and inaugurated by Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister and our Founding Patron, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The Forum, into its 9th Edition, seeks to provide an international platform for the sharing of analyses and experiences about the new trends and forces surrounding China’s evolution to become one of the world’s largest economies.
The FutureChina Global Forum has established itself as a major event for business executives and personalities with an interest in China. The "Belt and Road" initiative unveiled in 2013 by President Xi Jinping has received worldwide attention. Together with the strengthening and internationalisation of the Chinese Yuan, one cannot ignore the rise of China and needs to understand its impact on the region and the world. At the same time, technological changes are rapidly disrupting traditional business models and value chains, causing economic dislocations which can spill over into the political and social space. The future economy is also being contemplated in Singapore. In this context, a holistic approach integrating the business, political and societal dimensions of China’s new realities need to be taken in order to grasp the different forces and factors impacting the country’s development.
The Singapore Regional Business Forum (SRBF®) was created by Singapore Business Federation in 2015. It is a high-profile, open, neutral, inclusive and constructive platform that brings together top business leaders and senior government officials to discuss policy planning, economic vision, business and investment-related opportunities in the region.
In line with Singapore’s assumption of the ASEAN chairmanship in 2018, the FCGF & SRBF 2018 is a special edition Forum that will be organised in conjunction with the ASEAN Economic Ministers Meeting (AEM). This regional forum will be held in Singapore from 27th to 28th August 2018, during the week of the AEM meeting. It is anticipated that foreign ministers, ambassadors, state government officials and prominent businessmen from Singapore, China and the ASEAN will attend this high-level Forum in Singapore.
The Forum theme, “Basis for Future Prosperity and Innovation", is in line with the guiding themes of “Innovation” and “Resilience”, which ASEAN has identified as priorities for the region.
FCGF and SRBF 2018 will bring together 600 participants, most of them senior executives. It will provide a privileged opportunity for a stimulating exchange of insights and analyses.
We look forward to seeing you this high signature event.
