With Asia becoming a key growth engine for the global economy, Asia and the rest of the world are becoming increasingly connected and intertwined in what is often referred to as Global-Asia. Singapore is well placed to contribute to and to harness the opportunities arising from the significant increase in the flow of ideas, technology, goods, capital, talent and business within and between Asia and the rest of the world. It is with this intent in mind that the Singapore Summit is organised to bring together business and thought leaders from around the world to discourse over future-oriented topics in finance, business and economics with a Global-Asia focus.
The Singapore Summit is organised by the Global-Asia Programme Office, an inter-agency initiative, co-led by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and in collaboration with the Ministry of Trade & Industry, Ministry of Finance, GIC, and Temasek. The inaugural Singapore Summit was held in September 2012. Attendance is by invitation only.
