Impact of the China-US Trade War on Assets Management of PRC Individuals Overseas (27 June 2019)
Thursday 27 June 2019, 15:30 - 16:45
About this Seminar
 Given the background and scale of the China/USA trade conflict, it is very likely that the trade war will turn in a long-term battle between the two countries. Businesses and people are caught in the battle and are forced to re-consider whether to re-locate their business operations somewhere else and how to manage their assets from China. One likely location is Singapore. 
How can Singapore play a more active role in helping the PRC companies and individuals in the re-location and management of their businesses and assets? Does this connote opportunities for the trust and financial industries in Singapore? Do we even have a role to play there? To answer these questions, we will need to have a better understanding of the nature of trade war and its impact. Is it only about trade deficit? Or, is it about something much larger and much more complicated than just some trade numbers?
 
The talk will be followed by the STEP (Singapore) AGM. This seminar is complimentary for STEP members who stay on to attend the AGM.
