The Singaporean Government has long had a reputation for forward thinking, openness to new ideas and agility. In moments like the COVID crisis, many of these strengths became evident and were widely admired and respected.
However these capabilities did not arise overnight, they are strengths that were decades in the building.
So how does Singapore learn? And as we enter into an era of policy experimentation by necessity, what lessons can policymakers draw from Singapore for our own cities and countries?
Join us for a candid reflective conversation with a collection of Singaporean futurists and educators eager to share their observations and ask more questions with you.
The session will be a conversation between:
Cheryl Chung - Co-Director of Executive Education at Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore
Aaron Maniam - Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Communications and Information, Singapore Government
Jeanette Kwek - Head of the Centre for Strategic Futures
Chor Pharn Lee - Principal Strategist, Centre for Strategic Futures
