An interactive E-Book App on Singapore’s economic history & the GIC story.

Safeguarding the Future – The Story of How Singapore Has Managed Its Reserves and The Founding of GIC tells the untold story of Singapore’s reserve management history, and re-creates the vision, creativity and drive that led to the founding of GIC – a game changer in how Singapore would manage its foreign reserves. Yet, unconventional as it was then, GIC has a pre-history – its roots anchored in ideals and values affirmed in the crucible of the financial challenges facing the nation in its formative years.

Key features include:
• Rich archival resources, from letters exchanged in the 1960s on matters related to Singapore’s independence and sovereignty to newspaper articles, a video interview and historical images
• A digital timeline to follow the flow of events
• An audio book narrated by Lim Kay Tong
• Bookmarking, highlighting and note-creation tools to track your reading progress and record your thoughts
• Hand-drawn illustrations that enrich the story

Note: Before downloading the GIC History App, please verify that your iPad has at least 500MB of free space and ensure that your iPad is connected to WiFi.
