Dear Members and Friends

It was great to see collaborations in action last week. Our annual TV programme “Collaborate to Innovate: Achieving Positive Outcomes” was aired on Channel News Asia on 14 March at 7.00pm. It featured the winners of the 2023 SICC Awards for Collaborative Innovation sharing the how, the why and the lessons learned from their collaborations - all skilfully moderated by Wong Su Yen. You can view the programme here. The message we hope you will take away is this: “if these companies can achieve positive outcomes by collaborating, so can we!” For those of you who already have done so, we encourage you to participate in the 2024 SICC Awards. Full details of the 5 award categories and nomination forms may be found at

Earlier on the same day Chamber member Invest Northern Ireland, the province’s equivalent of our Economic Development Board and Enterprise Singapore, hosted its annual Ulster Fry Breakfast event to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and what Northern Ireland has to offer businesses. The Irish diaspora from north and south of the border and their Singaporean friends and investors were out in force. Everyone was inspired by the achievements of businesses and the opportunities Northern Ireland offers investors. Attended by both H.E. Kara Owen, the British High Commissioner and H.E. Sarah McGrath, the Irish Ambassador, the event demonstrated what is possible in agriculture, advanced manufacturing and life sciences when businesses are connected and go on to collaborate, innovate and invest.

St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of all Ireland and it was very encouraging to see all communities come together at the Irish Embassy’s St. Patrick’s Day Reception also held on the same day. Attendees were celebrating the greatest collaboration of all – that of different people of different cultures and faiths enjoying each other’s company and conversation in the spirit of what they have in common: their humanity and their collective potential for positive outcomes.

Have a great week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
