Singapore said on Wednesday it will host the inaugural Singapore Global Dialogue to offer a platform to debate and discuss issues of global strategic concern in September this year.

The two-day Singapore Global Dialogue, starting on September 23, will gather renowned leaders, policymakers, leading practitioners and opinion formers from defense and foreign affairs ministries, various government policy sectors, security forces, academia, think tanks and non-government-organizations all over the world to Singapore, according to the event organizer, the S.Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS).

"The Asia Pacific region has emerged from the recent global financial crisis to be even more strategically significant and a key player in international affairs. The high level, sustained engagements at Singapore Global Dialogue will provide an Asia Pacific perspective on global strategic concerns, giving participants an opportunity to make exchanges with and glean insights from eminent speakers hailing from all over the world," said Barry Desker, Dean of the RSIS.

At the event, speakers and participants will discuss current developments and explore today's most pertinent and pressing uncertainties to contemporary international order. The themes include the prospects for cooperation or competition between resurging powers; global responses to common transnational uncertainties and the future of global governance.
