The FutureChina Global Forum (FCGF®) was created by Business China Singapore in 2010 and inaugurated by Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister and our Founding Patron, the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. The Forum, into its 9th Edition, seeks to provide an international platform for the sharing of analyses and experiences about the new trends and forces surrounding China’s evolution to become one of the world’s largest economies. It saw foreign ministers, ambassadors, state government officials and prominent businessmen from Singapore, China, and the ASEAN attending this high-level Forum in Singapore.



The Forum theme, “Basis for Future Prosperity and Innovation", was in line with the guiding themes of “Innovation” and “Resilience”, which ASEAN has identified as priorities for the region. FCGF and SRBF 2018 brought together 600 participants, most of them being senior executives.

The panel discussion topic is “Greening the new silk road towards sustainable development: The opportunities for involvement and green finance investment”, which was discussed from three aspects: What criteria should be used to prioritize clean projects; How can Chinese and ASEAN companies be more complementary in their resources and expertise for conducting joint clean projects; What is happening in green financing in ASEAN countries, to match what China and institutions such as the AIIB are implementing.
