Dr Bicky Bhangu, President of the British Chamber of Commerce, Singapore said: “In our uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, predicting business cycles and outcomes are becoming increasingly challenging. The stabilising factor is strong, enduring partnerships; which is why I am honoured that Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister in the Prime Minister Office and Second Minister for Manpower and Foreign Affairs, has accepted our invitation to be the Guest of Honour at our Annual Business Awards.”
“The Awards is a chance for us to celebrate the best of business in Singapore and the Minister’s presence underscores the significance of the Singapore-UK trade relations at the very highest levels of government.”
“The UK’s Industrial Strategy and Singapore’s Committee on the Future Economy have a common goal, which is to establish overseas partnerships and policies. This means a significant focus to deepen and strengthen the UK-Singapore partnership. It is our hope that the Awards will encourage and help this along.”

Recognised as a prestigious commendation by supporting partners including the Singapore Business Federation and Department for International Trade, previous winners of awards over the past 17 years include Dyson, DBS, Barclays, BP, City Developments Limited, Resorts World Sentosa and Comfort Delgro.
