Event Details

We spend a lot of time in our events talking about what's happening all around Asia. But we never really talk much about Singapore, do we?

Let's change that.

On July 22, 2-3pm (SGT) we will host a webinar to discuss the Economist Intelligence Unit's current forecast for Singapore. Our guest will be the EIU's analyst for Singapore, Liuqing Yu, who was recently named by FocusEconomics as one of the top three economic forecasters of the Singapore economy. I'll be getting Liuqing's insights into some of the concerns we keep hearing about from our members here, such as Singapore's economic recovery, inflation risks, employment and talent issues, sustainable growth, politics, and more. This will be an interactive session where we will invite your questions so you can get some idea of what to expect here going forward.

We look forward to seeing you online!!

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please send an email to ecn_sea@economist.com.
