Rencontres Économiques in Singapore 2019
“New Horizons for the World Economy ”
“Les nouveaux horizons de l’économie mondiale”
While globalization has been accelerating, voices arise against an ever more integrated global economy. Innovation and new technologies are seen as aggravating factors polarizing the world and increasing inequalities. In this increasingly uncertain context, what are the real pro and cons of globalization? How can we rethink its governance? What set of rules could revive trust and efficiency?
This necessary debate is too often captured by populists alone and there is an urgent need for a more rational and international discussion. This is our ambition for this new edition of Les Rencontres Économiques in Singapore.
The Co-Organizers :
Part of the National University of Singapore, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy was established in 2004 with the mission of educating and inspiring current and future generations of leaders to raise the standards of governance in Asia, improve the lives of its people and contribute to the transformation of the region. With over 2,800 alumni spanning 90 countries, the School’s unique Asian focus allows students to form a network of future leaders and experience public policy education in a distinctively global environment.
In addition to Masters and PhD programmes, the LKYSPP offers high quality customised Executive Programmes that cater to the needs of time-constrained senior managers and professionals, with the aim of delivering creative solutions to real management and leadership challenges. The School has a number of research centres and institutes that contribute both to scholarly inquiry as well as policymaking, and frequently plays host to distinguished speakers and visiting scholars.
The Economic Society of Singapore (ESS) is a non-profit organization of economists and other professionals interested in economics. ESS brings together members of the economics profession in academia, the government and business sectors and provides a platform for discussions on issues facing the Singapore economy and the region.
The primary objective of the Society is to raise public awareness, and stimulate public interest and debate, in economic issues. It does this by organizing conferences, talks, workshops and public lectures and by conducting studies on issues, either on its own or in partnership with other organizations.
The objectives of ESS are to raise public awareness on Economic issues and to stimulate public interest in Economics, to encourage discussion on Economic problems with special reference to Singapore and to issue a journal and other special publications.
