Singapore Minister Says Shangri-La Dialogue to Resume This Year
(Bloomberg) -- The Shangri-La Dialogue will resume this year in Singapore, the country’s Minister of Defence Ng Eng Hen said in a Facebook post on Monday.
The security summit would resume because more effective safety measures are in place and Covid-19 vaccinations are ongoing, Ng said. The conference, which was launched in 2002, draws ministers and top policymakers to debate the region’s most important security challenges, and is slated for June 4-6, according to its website.
Having brought the coronavirus largely under control, Singapore has been pushing forward with re-opening its meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions sector, known as MICE.
