Guest-of-Honour, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, a very warm welcome to you and Happy Lunar New Year!
Since our founding in 2007, Business China dedicated ourselves to nurturing an inclusive bilingual and bicultural group of Singaporeans，so as to sustain our multi-cultural heritage and be the economic and cultural bridge between China and the world. We remain steadfast in our mission. Over the years, with your unwavering support, we have steadily built up a network of these individuals who are Singapore-China-savvy (新中通人才) and influential in their own circles.
In the coming years, Business China will also be working to encourage closer cooperation amongst our existing and new corporate and individual members. Strengthened network groups at various levels in different industries will further enhance our linkages to the Chinese economy, with the regional markets. I look forward to welcome your active participations.
