David Skilling “Limited Margin For Error” | Perspectives | Channel NewsAsia

What lies ahead for Singapore as the island nation work towards 2065? On top of population growth, productivity, economic challenges and national identity, what more must Singapore do to remain relevant to others, thereby ensuring stability and security for Singapore in a difficult world?

David Skilling, Director of Landfall Strategy Group: “The uncomfortable reality for small countries is that they have a very limited margin for error. If they get things just a little bit wrong, very bad consequences can follow. So it’s not a time for Singapore to relax. Singapore is navigating a transition.”
