The strong relationship that Singapore shares with the European Union (EU) is set to deepen significantly in the coming years. In October 2018, the two sides signed a Free Trade Agreement, an Investment Protection Agreement, and a Framework Agreement on Partnership and Cooperation. These accords will open a new chapter in the relationship between the two, paving the way for a more comprehensive and wide-ranging relationship.
These milestones provide a unique opportunity for both parties to deliberate on concrete joint objectives and priorities to pursue in the coming years. With this intention, a series of four high-level EU-Singapore Think Tank Dialogues will be organised in 2019.
Kick-starting this series is a one-day conference to discuss future prospects for security co-operation between both parties, focusing on cybersecurity, counter-terrorism and maritime security. Co-organised by the European Union Delegation to Singapore, the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) and the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS), the ‘EU-Singapore Dialogue: Addressing Security Challenges in a Changing World’ will feature a number of academics and public officials from the European Union and Singapore.
This event will take place on 30 January 2019 from 9.00am to 4.30pm at the Straits Room of the Fullerton Hotel.
