U.S.-Singapore economic ties run deep, with a foundation in the U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (FTA)—the first U.S. FTA in Asia. Since the FTA came into effect in 2004, trade between the two countries has almost doubled. Over the last fifty-five years, the U.S.-Singapore economic partnership has flourished.
How can the U.S. and Singapore continue working together to mitigate the risks and seize the opportunities that major disruptors to the global economy such as populism, protectionism, automation, digitization, and climate change present?
Join the panel of speakers on August 24, 5:15pm SGT as they discuss the roles the U.S. and Singapore can play in promoting economic growth and prosperity in both countries and the wider Indo-Pacific region.
