28 Jan Singaporean Youth Are Looking Beyond Our Shores For Success (Rice Media)
While some countries have taken to looking inwards as a result of the pandemic, the harsh reality is that “Singapore’s economy is not big enough to sustain interest from multinational companies”, according to Associate Professor Simon Tay, Chairman of the SIIA.
In an interview with Rice Media, he said “Youths in Singapore must treat Singapore as a gateway to the region. Singapore youths who take the time to grow familiar with ASEAN put themselves in the advantageous position of serving as an ambassador to the region, thus ensuring that their skills and expertise will always stay relevant.”
The SIIA is working with the National Youth Council Singapore in their Asia-Ready Programme, which aims to equip youths with knowledge about our region and how they can tap on the opportunities in the region amidst the uncertain economic landscape.
