Bloomberg forum a 'vote of confidence' for Singapore: Gan Kim Yong
SINGAPORE: The upcoming Bloomberg New Economy Forum is a "vote of confidence" for Singapore and the country's ability to manage COVID-19, said Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong on Monday (Oct 25).
Mr Gan said that the forum, which will be held from Nov 16 to 19, was also critical for Singapore's role as a business hub.
"Singapore is a hub for business and travel; many people from around the world come here to meet one another, to network, to do business with one another (and) with Singapore companies," he said.
"(It's) important ... to stay connected to the rest of the world. This will help us preserve our status as a hub city, and this will also in turn, continue to support our economic recovery and create (good jobs) for Singaporeans."
