Journalist Visit Programme, Indonesia 2015

Nine mid to senior journalists from major publications in Indonesia visited Singapore to experience its head, heart and soul in Singapore’s golden jubilee year, under the SIF’s Journalist Visit Programme from 24th to 30th May 2015.

The journalists dialogued with Dr William Wan, General Secretary of Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM), where they exchanged perspectives on gracious living and ideas on promoting positive change in their respective communities.
The SIF organises journalist visit programmes (JVPs) for opinion shapers in international media to gain first-hand insights into the head, heart and soul of Singapore. Through them, we aim to share Singapore’s social policies and innovations, multicultural diversity and way of life, promoting greater cross-cultural understanding between peoples of Singapore and Indonesia.
