The world is set for an economic downturn as it recovers from the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic and Singapore will not be spared. Economists have predicted that the Singapore economy could contract by 5.8 per cent in 2020, with many industries badly hit.
But we cannot afford to lose sight of longer-term priorities—the harnessing of new technologies, ensuring public health, getting workers prepared for future opportunities, and dealing with a much bigger challenge than Covid-19: Climate change. How can Singapore emerge stronger from this crisis? How can the government, business and society work together to address short term needs as well as the long-term resilience of our nation?
As Singapore hosts its annual Climate Action Week, join us on 18 August 2020 as we convene the leading minds to discuss the way forward and actions we can all take.
