Duration

This session is held on 28 Apr, 7.00pm - 10.00pm.

 

Great progress was made in 2019 taking our skills, knowledge, and experience to the emerging economies in the region only to see everything and everyone taking a pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic. After pausing for two years, it is time for us to reassess the landscape, plan for a comeback and reconnect with the region.

What is the session about?

 

After two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, the underlying fundamentals that allowed Singapore to succeed as an air hub, a sea hub and a tourist destination have all been shaken to the core. Suddenly, everyone realized how vulnerable we are as a nation. There is a critical need for both businesses and PMEs to explore opportunities in emerging economies in the region. Singaporeans do have the skills and systems to seize a bigger slice of the trans-boundary high value work. The question is how.

We don’t have to be good to start but to be good we have to start. We start by having a global mindset. According to SkillsFuture Singapore, this is the ability to operate in cross-cultural environments, demonstrating an awareness of the wider global context and markets to identify potential opportunities and risks.

Vietnam is expected to be one of the fastest growing Southeast Asian economies, with a projected gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 6.5 per cent for this year. Singapore is one of Vietnam’s largest trading partners and has been the leading source of foreign direct investment into Vietnam for two years running. It is third largest investor after Japan and South Korea.

Singapore’s early support for Vietnam by training its officials in the early days of its economic renovation was significant for its subsequent development. Similarly, Singapore professionals can play a role in the post-pandemic recovery and development of the Vietnamese economy.

Finally, our goal is to make things happen in the region. Therefore, before we end the session, we will form a team from the participants that will develop and execute the Go-To-Market plan for the Vietnam Market.

Go where we are celebrated and let us “Hunt as a Pack”. Come join us to make things happen in the region. Instead of starting from scratch, participants will be provided with an established platform in each of these countries where they can launch their offerings to help the professionals in the emerging economies. Instead of trying to break into these markets alone, participants will collaborate and “Hunt as a Pack” to compete with the rest of the world.
