Chairman’s Message

The Singapore Business Council (SBC) is here to serve you as a networking and learning forum and is open to all individuals and organisations to foster knowledge, business and professional development to advance your business interests in the UAE and Singapore.

Built on a history of trade, commerce, tourism and financial services, both Singapore and Dubai share a common vision of promoting a knowledge based economy   to enable the free and efficient movement of not only goods and services but also ideas.

The SBC seeks to Engage, Enrich and Enable its members to take advantage of the dynamism in this corridor through knowledge and networking sessions. We hope that each member will take away something of value even as they contribute to further its objectives and this is possible through active participation in our many events.

We want to hear from you on subjects that matter most and what we can do to grow our small but motivated community.

The success of the Council would not have been possible without the support and guidance of the concerned authorities in the UAE. In this regard, I extend my sincere appreciation to H.H. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid AI Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and members of the Ruling Council of the UAE for their leadership and vision in making the UAE’s business environment conducive for all to thrive and prosper.

I wish to thank H.E Hamad Buamim, the Director General of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry, H.E. Samuel Tan, Ambassador of the Republic of Singapore to the UAE and our Patron H.E. Cheong Ming Foong, Consul General of the Republic of Singapore in Dubai, for their valuable support to the SBC. And finally, my sincere thanks to the members of the SBC’s Executive Committee, who serve voluntarily and give their time and energy to serve the community.

With Kind Regards,
Surya Subramanian
Non-Executive Chairman
