The 21st century is often regarded as the Asian century with the Asian economies producing almost 40% of the global GDP - a figure set to rise with the emerging economies of India and Malaysia - while China and Japan follow closely behind US as the world's second and third largest economies. To reap the huge benefits of economic co-operation, Singapore has been intensifying its efforts to build strong ties with these Asian giants.

The 1st HC-APYLS

From 17th to 28th July 2006, HCI organised the first inaugural Hwa Chong Asia-Pacific Young Leaders Summit (HC-APYLS). The Summit took the form of a forum for promising student leaders who clearly demonstrated a commitment to serving society.
