Dr Beh Swan Gin was appointed Managing Director of the Economic Development Board in August 2008.

A trained doctor  with a medical degree from the National University of Singapore, Dr Beh has been with the organisation for 16 years and has held various appointments , ranging from industry development to planning and  policy, and from corporate development to global operations.

These included  leadership roles in the development of Singapore's Biomedical Sciences industry cluster from 2001 to 2006, as well as overseas assignments in EDB's North  American operations from 1995 to 2000.

With Asia as the fastest growing region in the world, multi-national companies (MNCs) have started to recognise that the Asian markets have unique needs and  opportunities.

In recent years, the EDB has started expand the Singapore value proposition from being an host for investments and a location for world-class manufacturing and R to that of being a partner and co-creator in
the development of new businesses, solutions, products and services.

Dr. Beh wil give an overview of the EBD's current pillar of activities before our traditional Q&A session.
