Over 20 retail leaders from across different retail sub-sectors actively participated in a series of workshops in the past few months to help develop a 5-year roadmap for the retail sector. Titled “Re-imagine Singapore Retail, this was discussed in a Sector Operation & Technology Roadmap (OTR) session with Mr Chee Hong Tat 徐芳达, NTUC Deputy Secretary-General and Ms Yeo Wan Ling, NTUC Director of U SME and U Women and Family. They were joined by Mr R Dhinakaran, President, SRA Council, ESG and retail leaders involved in developing the roadmap.

  1. Gain a broader perspective to accelerate business transformation
  2. Lead the retail community forward through a unified strategy
  3. Identify suitable resources to support companies’ business growth and manpower transformation
