Sharing Insights into the Heart and Soul of Singapore

A better world begins with better understanding. For a week in July, the SIF hosted seven journalists and editors from the Chinese cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu under our Journalist Visit Programme. They engaged in dialogues with policy makers, civil servants, and Singaporean families to learn about Singapore’s innovations in urban planning and experience our diverse cultural landscape and lifestyle.
