25 November 2019


Four Seasons Hotel, Crescent Ballroom, 190 Orchard Boulevard, SINGAPORE, 248646

Building on the success of the firs ttwo think tank dialogues, this third event will focus on challenges and opportunities for promoting economic security and openness through the implementation of the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement.

Co-organised by Egmont–the Royal Institute for International Relations of Belgium, and ISEAS –Yusof Ishak Institute, Singapore, with the support of the European Union Delegation to Singapore, the conference comprises a keynote speech and three panels. Taking its departure in the question of how the EU and Singapore can leverage the implementation of their FTA to promote economic openness in a time of economic uncertainty, the conference aims to provide think tanks, policy makers and academics with a platform for open dialogue as well as identify opportunities to enrich the EU-Singapore collaboration and offer key insights of best practices from past successes and promote mutual learning.
