The Singapore Economic Roundtable (SER) is a flagship programme of IPS. A select group of senior private sector economists, academics, business leaders and policy makers are invited to the roundtable which is held twice a year. The meeting is conducted along Chatham House rules and is intended to generate a frank discussion of major macro-economic policy issues facing Singapore. Each SER assesses current monetary and fiscal policy in the light of changing economic circumstances and provides a forum for non-policy makers to air their recommendations. In addition, each SER also looks at a longer term structural issue facing Singapore in detail.
The special focus session of the 14th SER will be on an examination of the challenge posed by large flows of portfolio capital into emerging markets. What are the likely policy responses in emerging economies and how could these affect Singapore?Media Coverage:
