Reply to Media Queries on Shangri-La Dialogue 2021

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) has informed the Singapore Government that it remains committed to organising the Shangri-La Dialogue (SLD) in Singapore in early June 2021. 


Over the years, the SLD has played an integral role in providing a significant and necessary platform in Singapore that allows top government officials and other participants from around the world to engage on key defence and security issues.


We are encouraged by the positive response to invitations to SLD 2021, which underscore the strong commitment of government leaders in addressing security challenges even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, as the COVID-19 situation is fluid and continues to evolve in the run-up to the meeting, the Singapore Government will continue to monitor the local and global COVID-19 situation and make the necessary adjustments. In doing so, the health and safety of everyone will be the foremost consideration.
