SMU Emerging Markets Forum 2017
On Wednesday 13th September 2017, SMU Emerging Markets launched our inaugural Emerging Markets Forum. Named "Demystifying Russia", the forum explored commonly held perceptions of Russia and delved into her key business opportunities and challenges. We were fortunate to be joined by distinguished panellists: Ms. Gwyneth Tan, former Singapore trade commissioner to Russia, Mr. Vadislav Solodkiy, managing partner of life.SREDA, Mr Timur Khamitov, head of Partnerships and Startup Ecosystems, and Mr. Karan Tilani, Head of Asia at World of Diamonds Group. Through engaging exchanges between the panellists and active participation from the audience, the forum provided guests with invaluable insights into various prominent industries in Russia and a glimpse into its culture and business environment. The forum is a resounding success, with participation from over 90 guests, both from and outside the university!
The forum was made possible through the joint efforts of our president Sophia, our CIS director Elaine, the EXCO and members of the 6th batch. SMU Emerging Markets is proud to reach this new milestone in our mission to promote awareness on emerging market regions, and we are grateful for the support given! Moving forward, we will work even harder to organise more of such events! Please stay tuned to our website and our Facebook page for updates!
