2023 marks the 10th anniversary of China’s Belt and Road Initiative. As the BRI continues to evolve, opportunities for Singapore remain in the areas of infrastructure expertise and legal services and are emerging in green innovations, green financing sectors. In the next decade, how can Singapore continue to tap on its strengths as a global trading, innovation, financial and legal hub to forge its own paths in the BRI?
“For large businesses, it might seem easier for them to capitalize on the doors that will be opened through the BRI but that’s not to say that opportunities do not exist for small businesses and startups too. Singapore has created a very solid base of entrepreneurs who are willing to take risk and willing to address hard problems and dedicate time and energy to it,” says James Tan, Managing Partner.
