We look forward with confidence to the future,” said Mr J Y Pillay, Chairman of SGX.
“Ten years after its formation, SGX has good claim to being a key Asian Gateway. But it knows that it faces competition daily, for listings and investment flows, and needs to keep innovating to stay relevant and ahead of the game,” said Mr Tharman.
