Ong Siew Gay, Consul General of Singapore in Shanghai and NUS Alumnus, also spoke at the event.
These networking events provide our alumni more than an opportunity to meet people – they also encourage a healthy exchange of ideas and information. “We hold such annual gatherings every year to give our Shanghai alumni an opportunity to share ideas and bond. It is here where many interesting ideas are born,” says Kim Fee Cheah, Chairman of NUS Alumni Shanghai Chapter.
