The Fourth Singapore Economic Roundtable March 2005


The Singapore Economic Roundtable is a forum of leading economists, policy makers and business leaders who gather twice a year to discuss important issues that impact on Singapore's economy. A joint effort of the Institute of Policy Studies and The Business Times, it raises questions on the role that government organisations in Singapore can play, and the ways in which we should reposition ourselves to meet new challenges.

The Fourth Singapore Economic Roundtable includes:

  • Recent macroeconomic developments in Singapore, by Edward Robinson, Executive Director, Economic Policy Department, Monetary Authority of Singapore
  • Economic Outlook and Budget, Implications on Monetary Policy, by Dr Timothy Condon, Managing Director and Head of Research, Asia, ING Bank N V
  • Singapore: Asia's Global City?, by Sanjeev Sanyal, Director, Global Markets research, Deutsche Bank A G

The Fourth Singapore Economic Roundtable tackles issues on Singapore's competitiveness such as:

  • new areas of growth and higher levels of competitiveness in some service areas;
  • policy makers assessing fiscal policy solely on whether competitiveness is enhanced;
  • whether Singapore is capable of becoming an Asian global city; and
  • what Singapore can do to improve relations with her neighbours

One of the questions thrown up by the open discussion at the Roundtable is: what are the consequences of becoming a global city? This fourth Roundtable report will hopefully provide some answers to this and other questions, and promote positive changes in Singapore's fiscal and foreign policies.
