During the World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC) Handover Ceremony held on November 21 at the SMX Convention Center in Manila, the WCEC flag was handed by the Philippines over to Singapores Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr George Yeo and President of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Mr Teo Siong Seng. Two years from now, the 11th WCEC will be held from 5 to 7 October at Resorts World Sentosa.

With a wide range of unique experiences, Resorts World Sentosa snagged the opportunity to host the 11th WCEC, expected to congregate some 4,000 business leaders from around the world to Resorts World Sentosa for three days of networking, cultural exchange and experiencing world-class entertainment at the same time.

Mr Teo Siong Seng, SCCCI President, said, We are extremely pleased to be able to host the 11th WCEC in Singapore from 5th to 7th October 2011, twenty years after it was first founded by the SCCCI. It is an honour and a privilege for Singapore and for our Chamber, and we look forward to welcoming our friends from the global Chinese community to join us as we stage this convention in Resorts World Sentosa.

Mr Tan Hee Teck, Chief Executive of Resorts World Sentosa, added, Having such an internationally-renowned event held at Resorts World Sentosa augments the confidence organisers and conference planners have in our MICE offerings. We are confident that our 4,000 delegate guests will have their best conference at our destination.

At the Handover Ceremony, a video was shown to the audience, showcasing the theme of the 11th WCEC and Singapore as a premier destination to work, live and play. It also gave the convention delegates a glimpse of what they can expect to see and experience at Resorts World Sentosa. Immediately after the video, 12 young dancers from Singapore performed a dance segment, followed by a song item by Derrick Hoh of Project Superstar fame. The finale ended with the entire Singapore delegation going on stage to sing a specially-composed song sung to the tune of the Singapore song, Home.
