Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam will be giving a keynote address this morning at The Straits Times Global Outlook Forum.
The Straits Times editor Warren Fernandez will engage Mr Tharman on stage after the minister’s keynote address. The audience will also get an opportunity to pose questions directly to the minister.
… “Over the past four years, the Global Forum has emerged as a significant event highlighting the challenges of the year to come,” said The Straits Times associate editor Ravi Velloor, who will be speaking at the forum.
“This year, we are particularly fortunate to have DPM Tharman as our keynote speaker. Few know the global – and regional – economy better than him. And in Mr Ong Keng Yong, we have a person who knows Asean’s many challenges from the inside.”
Mr Ong served as Secretary-General of Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) from 2003 to 2008, and was High Commissioner of Singapore to Malaysia from 2011 to 2014.
