Mr Leon Perera: To ask the Minister for Trade and Industry how much state expenditure has been budgeted to support the World Economic Forum Special Annual Meeting.
Written Answer by Minister for Trade and Industry Mr Chan Chun Sing
1. We look forward to hosting the World Economic Forum’s Special Annual Meeting in Singapore in August this year. It will reinforce Singapore’s positioning as a choice location for safe and successful world-class Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) events. We are working with the Forum to put in place the necessary measures to ensure the safety and security for all participants and staff, and for our community. The specific arrangements and hence, the associated costs can only be firmed up nearer the date.
