Visits & Insights
Singapore Insights is a series of thematic study visits and dialogues that introduce the international community in Singapore to the heart of the city’s innovation and way of life, enhancing understanding between Singaporeans and world communities.
The study visits illuminate different aspects of Singapore culture, such as sustainable urban living, multiculturalism and social innovation.
You can learn more about the perspectives of the international community who have visited, worked or studied in Singapore in our publications Singapore: Insights from the Inside, which feature stories by friends of Singapore from around the world.
