About FECE 2019
The FECE is organised as part of SBF’s role as the apex business chamber here and complements the work of the Committee on the Future Economy and the Future Economy Council (FEC). The FECE carries the messages of the FEC to the business community. SBF organised the inaugural FECE in 2017. This year, the theme of the event is “People, Digitalisation & The Future of Jobs”.
The event will explore how technology is changing the way business is conducted, how jobs will change as a result, and how there should be stronger linkages between businesses and education including areas where businesses can take greater ownership and play a greater role.
Established on 1 April 2002, the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) is the apex business chamber championing the interests of the Singapore business community. With 25,800 member companies, SBF’s focus is to sense, prioritise, analyse and help resolve burning issues facing significant segments of businesses. All Singapore-registered companies with a share capital of S$0.5 million and above are members of SBF.
As the bridge between the Singapore business community and the Government, SBF advocates firmly on behalf of businesses and our workforce, as well as at international settings, to promote the growth and vibrancy of our business community, contributing to the prosperity of Singapore.
The Federation works closely with key local and foreign business chambers, and has inaugurated the Trade Association & Chamber (TAC) Alliance to be a better enabler for the business community.
