Dear AmCham Members and Guests,
As you might be aware, on Friday, February 7, the Singapore Ministry of Health raised the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) alert from Yellow to Orange. This means that they are advising event organizers to cancel or defer non-essential large-scale events.
After assessing available information and discussing the evolving situation with the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Singapore Board of Governors, major sponsors and other stakeholders, we have decided to postpone the AmChams of Asia Pacific (AAP) Business Summit 2020, which was to be held in Singapore on March 11 and 12. We will be hosting the event next year in March/April.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this postponement may have caused and will announce the new Summit dates when the information is available.
AmCham Singapore is monitoring the 2019 novel coronavirus situation closely, following government guidelines, with the aim of reducing the risk of exposure to our staff, members and visitors. We are currently re-evaluating our calendar of events and will notify you if there are any changes or postponements. Please check our website and social media channels on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, for the latest information.
In times of crisis, there is nothing more important than a strong community. I urge you to be kind, generous, and caring to one another — offering help and support when needed.
Do not hesitate to let me know how my team and I can support you and your business. In my capacity as AmCham CEO and as a public health scientist, my goal is to ensure that you have the knowledge, plans and connections to successfully manage the situation at hand and begin charting the recovery process.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Hsien-Hsien Lei
Chief Executive Officer
American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore
