A global pushback OCT 17, 20165:50 AM THIS WEEK'S TOPIC: What would be the impact on business of a growing backlash against globalisation in the major economies? How should policymakers respond? Tan Chong Huat Managing Partner RHTLaw Taylor Wessing LLP EXPANDED global trade has raised incomes around the world. Unfortunately, as the Brexit vote demonstrated, the backlash against globalisation is real. It is increasingly clear that policymakers have underestimated the rise of nationalism and the sentiment of having been left behind felt by sections of society. Policymakers need to help workers affected by globalisation to retrain and get back into the labour force quickly. Economies like Singapore need to remain open and embrace globalisation. This is the only way to create jobs and raise incomes. For example, Singaporean businesses must press on in the Asean markets. At RHTLaw Taylor Wessing and the RHT Group of companies, we are actively growing our external wing through our Asean Plus initiative. This is evidenced by the recent launch of RHTLaw Taylor Wessing Vietnam.
