SIF Connects! Bandung

SIF Connects! Bandung -- the first of a series of overseas dialogues that SIF is organising to involve Friends of Singapore in #SG50 celebrations.

The dialogue centres on the question What’s next, Singapore, building on the insights from our Indonesian friends that were shared in Singapore: Insights from the Inside Volume II.
