RSBF, 21 September 2012

The seventh annual Russia-Singapore Business Forum (RSBF), held from 24 – 27 September 2012 in Singapore, focused on Singapore as a gateway to Asia, a vibrant region of emerging cities and fast developing markets. The forum featured industry-specific sessions on Industrial Cluster Development, Real Estate Investment, Innovation and Technology.

After several years of raising awareness about Singapore in Russia and vice-versa, both nations are finally reaching a level where concrete collaborations are happening, says Michael Tay, Singapore's former ambassador to Russia and Executive Director of RSBF, in his interview for The Business Times Singapore. During the RSBF’s Ministerial Dialog Session between DPM of Singapore Tharman Shanmugaratnam and First DPM of Russia Igor Shuvalov, its moderator Michael Tay mentioned several partnerships and collaborations which have been forged between Russia and Singapore, including IDM Venture Capital, which has since invested in two Singapore companies.
