It is the start of a new decade, one in which new technologies will continue to dramatically change the way people live, work and play. From autonomous vehicles and quantum computing to next-generation 5G and AI, the future is being redefined. At the core of this automation revolution is a quiet but critical driver, the microchip – the key enabler of modern technologies and technology driven growth.

Over the last 50 years, semiconductors have underpinned Singapore’s success. Today, we are writing a new future for the sector as we move up the value chain. Core to this new future are key investments, including in research and attracting passionate, driven and skilled school leavers and professionals into the sector.

As we enter 2020, Singapore Semiconductor Industry Association (SSIA) and the Economic Development Board (EDB) will embark on a campaign to tell the untold stories of the microchip and its heroes, from chipmakers to scientists, to inspire school leavers and showcase the current and future potential of the sector.
