The SIIA is the knowledge partner of the Emerging Stronger Taskforce (EST). The Taskforce was established by the Singapore government in May 2020 to provide recommendations on how Singapore can stay economically resilient and build new sources of dynamism in the post-COVID-19 world. As the EST’s knowledge partner, the SIIA is organising a series of closed-door virtual roundtable dialogues with business leaders to gather insights and ideas that can be shared with the Taskforce, as well as holding public webinars to encourage discussion on the future of Singapore’s economy.
