SIF Connects! Bandung
150 Friends of Singapore (FOS) gathered on 13 June 2015 to discuss what’s next for Singapore. The event was hosted by SIF-ASEAN Fellowship alumnus and Mayor of Bandung Ridwan Kamil at his official residence, the Pendopo Walikota Bandung.
Attended by SIF programme alumni and FOS who have visited, worked and lived in Singapore, as well as Indonesians keen to learn more about SIF collaborations, the dialogue involved the international community in Singapore’s golden jubilee celebrations, or SG50. It followed the launch in Singapore earlier in March, of the second volume of Singapore: Insights from the Inside, a collection of 50 stories by the international community which explores the head, heart and soul of Singapore. The dialogue also involved the Indonesia Bright Foundation, an education initiative to give back to society by the Indonesian chapter of the SIF-ASEAN Fellowship alumni network.
