Singapore-France Economic Forum | Les Rencontres Économiques in Singapore

Organized by Le Cercle des économistes, the Economic Society of Singapore, ESSEC Business School, and Paris EUROPLACE, the first edition of Les Rencontres Économiques in Singapore, Singapore-France Economic Forum will be held at ESSEC Asia-Pacific on Thursday, 24 and Friday, 25 November 2016. We are honored to welcome Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Singapore Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies, as the Guest-of-Honor for this inaugural Forum.

Through a free and open debate, new ideas will emerge on key issues such as innovation, monetary policies, economic growth, investment, finance or regional integration.

These topics will be discussed by high-level speakers, among them:
