The Singapore Press Club has extended this very interesting event to FCA members at their member rates. PLEASE NOTE: Registration is with their secretariat, so DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL as automatically inserted at bottom of this email. Title: Defending Singapore: Strategies for a Small State We all live in a changing world. Security has become the No. 1 concern for all -- be it at the personal, organisational or national level. Globalisation has allowed groups with ill intent to link up, franchise the methods of terrorism, and transfer the necessary technology, funds, expertise and experts across continents. In view of the changed global conditions, governments must now also take very different approaches to enhance security. The new security challenges obviously cannot be adequately dealt with by any one country. A new international security architecture is slowly emerging. All countries, particularly small ones like Singapore, can thrive only in a stable geopolitical environment that is governed by predictable and impartial international norms While small countries expect the big countries to meet their obligations and responsibilities as members of the international community, security of their nation state is of paramount importance to small countries. How does Singapore, one of the smallest among small states, defend itself in the face of these challenges? Come listen to Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean discuss the strategies open to Singapore. Please register early to avoid disappointment. The last two talks --- by MediaCorp Chairman Ho Kwon Ping in January and International Association of Press Clubs' immediate Past President Jim Laurie earlier this month --- were sold out and many members on the waiting list could not join in. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- REGISTRATION Please send payment by cheque payable to Singapore Press Club and mail to: Singapore Press Club, c/o ASCS, 150 Orchard Road #08-10, Orchard Plaza, Singapore 238841 Specify your name, FCA membership number and telephone number
