Singapore Remains Focused on Globalization

Singapore has planted a fresh flag to promote global trade – in stark contrast to what it sees as a “dark shift” toward protectionism in other developed markets.

The CFE was set up last year to develop strategies to prepare the workforce for economic and social challenges, including digital disruption and an aging population.
