The world is a complicated space today. From battling the Covid-19 pandemic to facing a war between Russia and Ukraine, economic situations are in disarray around the world. Collaboration could perhaps be the answer to driving through the bumpy terrains.
This — collaborative advantage — was the theme at the 51st St Gallen Symposium, the world’s leading initiatives for cross-generational dialogue on economic, political and social themes and development.
Grace Fu, Singapore’s minister for sustainability and environment, stressed how partnerships and collaboration are important for climate action. “As a small island-state with limited land, and limited manpower and alternative energy options, Singapore is especially vulnerable to the impact of climate change. Driving our sustainability initiatives requires a whole-of-nation effort,” she says.
