Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s Progress Singapore Party (PSP) has decided to change the venue for its upcoming ‘PSP TALKS’ event, due to an overwhelming response from Singaporeans who wish to attend the forum.

Last week, the PSP announced that it is initiating a new event series called ‘PSP TALKS’. These events would see the party invite thought leaders and subject experts to share their insights and ideas about important national issues. The PSP’s new initiative is aimed at generating robust discussions on issues that impact the lives of Singaporeans.

The first forum in the series will see ex-GIC chief economist Yeoh Lam Keong speaking about poverty in Singapore and the policy gaps in Singapore’s social safety nets. The conversation is expected to cover the causes of social inequality and poverty in Singapore and the policy reforms that are needed to eradicate poverty.

A prominent economist, Mr Yeoh is an independent, non-partisan economist and socio-political commentator who has a reputation for being bold in putting forth his measured views on public policy and financial economics.

All the tickets to the event – which is scheduled to take place next Tuesday (10 Sept) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm – were snagged less than a day after the PSP announced the event.

Today (4 Sept), the party announced that it has decided to change the venue of the event due to the overwhelming response it received, to accommodate more people. PSP announced that it decided to find a bigger and more comfortable venue due to the sell-out demand for the event and the constraints of the original event space.

The event will now take place at the Concorde Hotel, Studio 1, 100 Orchard Road, Singapore 238840. The date and time of the talk remain unchanged.
