About SMU China Forum

The SMU China Forum is a high-level dialogue platform for the academia and business communities of Singapore and China to share useful insights and experiences, as well as to exchange views and feedback on issues that are of significance or impact to China and Singapore in their respective economic and social developments. The inaugural SMU China Forum was successfully held in Nov 2013 and subsequent editions of this annual series also enjoyed the strong support of prominent scholars/experts, senior officials and industry captains from both countries.   

The Forum is aimed at elevating SMU’s profile as a specialised, rising research university of relevance to China and at growing positive mindshare with leading Chinese universities which are SMU’s valued partners, business leaders as well as policy-makers interested in Sino-Singapore relations and contemporary China affairs.  The curation of the Forum is based on SMU’s academic strengths and its five (5) areas of research excellence, namely Finance and Financial Markets; Analytics for Business, Consumer and Social Insights; Economics of Ageing and Healthcare Management; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; and Urban Management and Sustainability.

论坛旨在提升新大作为一所崭露头角的专业研究型大学,在对中国相关课题方面的研讨产生更大的影响力。新大向来高度重视其与中国一流伙伴大学所建立的合作关系,并希望通过举办此论坛来加强两国学者与政商界领袖对新中关系和当代中国事务的关注与讨论,发挥积极作用。

论坛内容的策划是依据新大的学术优势与其五个卓越的研究领域而开展的,分别为财经和金融市场;商业、消费者行为和社会现象大数据分析;老龄化经济和医疗保健管理;创新与创业;城市管理与可持续发展。

 

About SMU China Forum’s theme

The Next Phase of the Belt and Road Initiative: Globalisation with Chinese Characteristics? 

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a multifaceted economic, diplomatic and geopolitical undertaking by China aimed at building a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa through the overland Silk Road Economic Belt and the oceanic 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. Having gained the support of over 100 countries and international organisations and with more than 40 cooperation agreements signed to date, the BRI can be regarded as a symbol of the rise of China-based globalisation. Framed in terms of “peace and co-operation”, “openness and inclusiveness”, “mutual learning and benefit”, many governments of partner countries view this ambitious project underpinned by a China-led strategy as a significant catalyst for regional economic expansion and prosperity. Will the BRI spur greater global integration and shape a new international order?  Three distinguished scholars from SMU, Renmin University of China and Fudan University, as well as a prominent business leader from the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), will share their expert views and unique insights on the issue at this Forum.

About The Panel Discussion Topic

 “Connectivity and Cooperation within the BRI Framework: How Singapore and China can benefit together?"

The “One Belt One Road” Initiative proposed by China aims to provide an important opportunity for more than 60 connected countries to deepen cooperation and strengthen economic and trade exchanges. Under this framework, China and Singapore are focusing on the Chongqing Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity to jointly promote multidimensional and multilevel connectivity and development in four areas: finance, aviation, transport logistics and information technology. How should Singapore, which is the main country along the “Maritime Silk Road”, make use of its unique advantage as the hub of Asia Pacific finance, trade and shipping to contribute to and benefit from “One Belt One Road”? As the second largest economy in the world, how can China tap on Singapore’s influence in the region to explore the immense potential and opportunity of “One Belt One Road” and reshape the global economic landscape? With experiences and perspectives in various fields of expertise, the guests participating in this panel discussion will express their views and share their ideas.
