ASEAN Leaders’ Conference
3 february 2018

The ASEAN Leader’s Conference 2018 was organised by the United Kingdom-Singapore Students’ Council. It aims to bring together young leaders from across ASEAN to discuss issues facing ASEAN today, and to come up with solutions for the problems of tomorrow.

The conference this year consisted of a Panel Discussion, followed by group discussion and presentations by the participants. The topics were centred around the ASEAN economy and identity, as well as giving back to society.

Our guest of honour this year was Ms. Foo Chi Hsia, High Commissioner of the Republic of Singapore to the UK. Panelists for the Panel Discussion were Ms. Ketsuda Supradit, Minister (Economic and Financial) for the UK and Europe from the Royal Thai Embassy in London, Mr. Mohd. Suhaimi Jaafar, Deputy High Commissioner of the High Commission of Malaysia in London, as well as Dr. Alan Collins, Senior Lecturer on International Relations from Swansea University.

The Conference was held on 3rd February 2018, and welcomed a total of 50 student leaders from across ASEAN to attend. We would like to thank all those who participated, and those who helped us in one way or another.

Here’s wishing ASEAN a great 2018!

Handover Ceremony
18 November 2017

Dear Members,

UKSSC had our Handover Ceremony at High Commission of Singapore in London with High Commissioner Ms Foo Chi Hsia as our Guest of Honor.
Having been in the 19th Executive Committee, it has been a pleasure and honor to serve with them and we have accomplished many things during the 19th term.
As I continue to lead the 20th Executive Committee, we would be striving to create a bona fide Singapore Student Community across the UK. We will be organizing our flagship and regional events for Singaporeans both in the UK and Singapore.
This is UKSSC’s 20th batch and as we embark on a new decade of Singaporean student leaders throughout UK, we fully intend to make it a memorable one.
We would like to introduce our newly revamp website at www.ukssc.org . Further, we have created our Instagram account (@TheUKSSC) too! Be sure to also sign up to our newsletter. Through our social media platforms, we will be posting events and news of UKSSC and partner societies and organisations.
Lastly, we hope you will continue to support the UKSSC.

Thank you.

Rachel Loke

Singaporeans in Conversation
19 AUGUST 2017

Singaporeans in Conversation (SginC) is an annual panel discussion organised by the United Kingdom-Singapore Students’ Council (UKSSC), to reach out to and raise awareness about the organisation, and what they do. The first edition, which was held last year, touched on the topic ‘Beyond SG50: A New Social Contract?’

This year’s edition was held on 19 August at the S&P Global office in Marina Bay Financial Centre, and was attended by close to 50 attendees. It featured three panel members, including Mr Teo Eng Dih, Senior Director (Climate Change) at the Prime Minister’s Office, and Mr Wilson Ang, Executive Director of Global Compact Network Singapore, which is the national society that promotes corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Singapore.

Discussions were centered on the topic of ‘Politics in Climate Change’, where panelists explored how climate change has become a facet of international politics, the implications it has on international relations, and also on the climate change policies that have been put in place both at home and abroad.

“The session helped to clarify some of the implemented policies and engineering rationales behind certain infrastructures in Singapore, and how they would be affected if the country experiences drastic climate change. There were also a few other questions raised from the audience to the panelists, such as how Singapore could do more to reduce the usage of, and increase the recycling of plastic bags.” said Yu Thet Wai, UKSSC’s General Secretary (19th Executive Committee), adding, “We are elated and honoured to have been a part of planning and organising this educational event.”

The UKSSC will next be organising an ‘All Scots Weekend’ trip for their Scotland-based members from 27-28 October, co-organising Singapore Community Day in London on 28 October, and preparing for the new executive committee handover.
