Albert Winsemius and Singapore


Launched on 23 May 2022 with Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr Heng Swee Keat, as the Guest of Honour, Albert Winsemius and Singapore: Here It is Going to Happen lays out the contributions of Albert Winsemius, a quietly unassuming and publicity-shy Dutch policymaker, businessman and economic adviser, and his synergy and discussions with the pioneering leaders of Singapore like Mr Lee Kuan Yew and Dr Goh Keng Swee.

For the first time, a team of NTU Singapore economists has compiled a detailed, wide-ranging, and meticulous study of Albert Winsemius’ impact on Singapore’s early economic development. This book was written by Prof Euston Quah under the support of the Albert Winsemius Chair Professorship endowment at NTU together with Luke Nursultan Iuldashov and Zach Lee, both also from NTU.
