At the Smart Nation & U 2021: Closing Fireside Chat last Friday, Singapore’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister-in-charge of the Smart Nation Initiative, Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, spoke about local corporate citizenships: how public-private partnerships are pivotal in helping more Singaporeans in mid-career change, and building confidence and trust. VMware’s Adrian Hia, Country Manager, Singapore, was among the invited guests at the Fireside Chat. Harnessing tech as a force for good has always been one of our key commitments at VMware, and we have since collaborated closely with the Singapore government to strengthen our local tech ecosystem and talent. We thank the Minister for his kind words on VMware’s role as an enabler in helping Singapore businesses respond, adapt, accelerate during Covid-19 pandemic, while building a digitally inclusive society. We remain committed to being a trusted partner in Singapore’s Smart Nation journey.
