The Sixth Singapore Economic Roundtable March 2006


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 Sixth Singapore Economic Roundtable includes:

  • Recent macroeconomic developments in Singapore, by Edward Robinson, Executive Director, Economic Policy Department, Monetary Authority of Singapore
  • Singapore: A Cooler Place, by Chua Hak Bin, Senior Regional Economist, Economic-Market Research, DBS Bank Ltd
  • Unexplored Synergies in Malaysia-Singapore Relations: The Way Forward by Dr . R Thillainathan, Past President, Malaysian Economics Association

The Sixth Singapore Economic Roundtable explores how Singaporeans think and do business, and touches on issues such as

  • various demands in Singapore economy;
  •  the competitive strengths of Singapore and Malaysia;
  • the different mindsets of people in Singapore and Malaysia; and
  • possible ways of exploring new synergies between Singapore and Malaysia.

One question thrown up for discussion at the Roundtable is: how can Singapore and Malaysia combine forces to ensure each other's survival in the global marketplace? This sixth Roundtable takes a look at our relationship with our neighbour and offers suggestions on improving it.
