Ms Tin Pei Ling will be appointed CEO of Business China with effect 21 May 2018. She takes over from Ms Sun Xueling who will relinquish the position on the same date. Ms Sun has been appointed as Senior Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of National Development on 1 May 2018.

Mr Lee Yi Shyan, Chairman Business China said: “I would like to put on record the board’s appreciation of Ms Sun’s many contributions during her tenure in Business China. Amongst many accomplishments, Ms Sun helped Business China develop wider linkages with Chinese partners. She spearheaded partnership MOUs with Chinese enterprises, industry associations and IHLs to deepen connectivity through people-to-people exchanges with China. In particular, Business China started programmes with Guangzhou Knowledge City, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Nanjing Eco Hi-tech Island. To provide more opportunities for young Singaporeans to learn about China, Business China set up an Internship Fund to sponsor internship immersion in China, rolled out China-ready Programmes with the IHLs and supported National Library Board’s “Eye on Asia” initiative”.

Mr Lee, added further: “Business China welcomes Ms Tin Pei Ling onboard. Ms Tin joins Business China from Jing King Tech Holdings Pte Ltd where she was Group Director for Corporate Strategy and responsible for group strategy, corporate and business transformation. Jing King Tech is a Singapore-based firm with extensive operations in China and ASEAN, offering secure data handling and smart technology solutions. Ms Tin is the Member of Parliament for MacPherson SMC and is passionate about bilingualism and biculturalism.

Ms Tin said: “Now more than ever, Singapore must continue to remain relevant in this highly dynamic world that we live in. I see Business China as the vehicle through which we cultivate and connect with bicultural talents who can help strengthen Singapore’s position as the cultural and economic bridge linking the world and China. It is a great privilege for me to have this opportunity to build on the good work done by Xueling and past CEOs, and to further the cause of Business China and the interests of Singapore.”
