Editorial

Welcome to the third edition of Treasury Today Asia

Singapore is our Country Focus in this month’s edition. Singapore has experienced a meteoric rise following its independence from Malaysia in the mid-1960s. The following five decades can be characterised by a steady growth and influx of foreign talent and investment as Singapore has swelled to become one of the world’s most developed countries. As the government pushes for a curb in foreign workforce growth and an increase in productivity, we bring you the latest insight on Singapore’s future and what that means for treasurers in the region.

Singapore is the region’s most popular location for establishing a regional treasury centre (RTC). In this issue we analyse the trends surrounding Asian multinationals increasingly beginning to establish RTCs. Although historically lagging behind their Western contemporaries, is the tide beginning to turn?

Nominations for this year’s Adam Smith Awards have now closed. We were delighted and overwhelmed by the quantity and calibre of nominations for our new category of Asia Pacific Regional Award for Best Practice. We look forward to celebrating the successes of all our winners in June at the Adam Smith Awards Lunch in London and we would like to thank all those who submitted. The complete list of winning corporates is available to view online; treasurytoday.com/adamsmith
