Among the audience were Dr Tan Chin Nam, Chairman of the Media Development Authority; Dr. N. Varaprasad, Chief Executive of National Library Board; and Mr Baey Yam Keng, Minister of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC.
In opening remarks, Dr. Tony Tan, Chairman of SPH and the SPH Foundation, said:”At SPH, the traditional print media remains our core business, but we also aim to be a leading new-media player by committing $150 million in the online and mobile space. We have to learn to embrace new media and synergise it with the existing traditional media. They each have their place in the media landscape of tomorrow.”
