This year, the Economic Society of Singapore, Le Cercle des économistes and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore are coming together to organize an economic forum around the theme “New Horizons for the World Economy”. bringing together esteemed speakers from different backgrounds and countries, this event is set to mark a key milestone in the discussion between Europe and Asia.
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.
