Two EDB Senior Officers tell us how meaningful and rewarding it is to be responsible for developing, strengthening and building next-generation industries for Singapore.
By Gerald Goh
For over half a century, Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) has been the lead architect in shaping the Singapore economy, anchoring high-value activities and encouraging multi-national companies to use Singapore as their Home for Business, Innovation and Talent and thereby creating good jobs for Singaporeans.
The rising tide in Asia, which includes China, India and Singapore’s regional neighbours in Southeast Asia, creates immense opportunity for Singapore to entrench and strengthen its status as a premier global city in Asia. EDB will continue to play a critical role to keep Singapore’s economy at the forefront of industry, technology and business opportunities and constantly seeking new growth frontiers.
