Sat, 24 Jul 2021 - Sat, 24 Jul 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Associate Professor Simon SC Tay – Chairman, Singapore Institute of International Affairs
If you’re an avid follower of current affairs in Singapore, you would have heard that there is an on-going discussion in Parliament on Singapore’s free trade agreements (FTAs), such as the Singapore-India Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA). While FTAs are essential for us to remain connected to the world, there are concerns that being open impacts our job opportunities, and might fuel racism or anti-foreigner sentiments.
What do you, as a Singaporean youth, think about FTAs and Singapore’s policy of openness and engagement with the world?
Join us in our upcoming live webinar and be engaged in a Q&A session with our speaker to gain greater awareness and understanding on the benefits of global engagement versus the dangers of protectionism.
This webinar is brought to you by the National Youth Council (NYC) and the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA).
