SIF Young Business Ambassadors Programme
The Young Business Ambassadors (YBA) is a flagship SIF programme which allows outstanding young professionals to spend up to 12 weeks working and living in partner countries, such as in China and India.
This overseas exposure offers a valuable opportunity for participants to develop a global perspective, share work experiences, build international business links, and gain an understanding of foreign business environments. The YBAs will not only be posted to an industry related to their work but will also be able to meet relevant non-government and government linked agencies. They will get to network with business and community leaders as well as with government officials.
