SIF Connects! Washington D.C.

The Singapore International Foundation (SIF) was in Washington DC on Thursday, 8 September 2016 to reconnect with our Friends of Singapore (FOS). This was a special event for us, for three good reasons – the 50th year of Singapore’s bilateral relationship with the US, 25 years of meaningful friendships between Singaporean and American communities nurtured through SIF programmes, and the inaugural dialogue organised by SIF in partnership with the US-Asia Institute (USAI).

Themed Innovative Social Policies for a Better World, the dialogue drew over 130 interested Singaporeans and Friends of Singapore keen to dialogue and share ideas on what Singapore and the US could learn from each other to propel change for good within our respective societies. Together with the panel comprising Singaporeans and Americans from the government and civil society sectors, the audience enjoyed an active exchange of insights and perspectives on how Singapore and the US had respectively addressed the common issues of education, race/ethnic relations and integration.
