The Singapore Schuman Lecture series is the flagship event of the European Chamber of Commerce in Singapore. It is held annually in Singapore with the support of the European Union.

For each Lecture Series held, EuroCham welcomes a different European personality each time to address a high-level audience with a key note speech followed by a question and answers session. The event takes place in form of a prestigious gala dinner and welcomes about 300 distinguished guests, including Singaporean government representatives, foreign ambassadors, CEOs and managing directors of major European and local companies.

The speaker is invited to share his or her views on the role of Europe and its individual member countries, as well as their relations with Singapore and the other ASEAN countries.

The Singapore Schuman Lecture series is named after the former French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman whose famous “Schuman Declaration” led to the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951.

The first edition of the Schuman Lecture Series welcomed Mr. Romano Prodi, former President of the European Commission and former Prime Minister of Italy, the second edition welcomed Mrs. Christine Lagarde, former French Minister for Economics, Finance and Industry, and the third edition welcomed Lord Peter Mandelson, former UK Secretary of State for Business, First Secretary of State and EU Trade Commissioner. The fourth session welcomed Mr. Pascal Lamy, former Director-General of the World Trade Organization, while our fifth edition hosted H.E. Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council. We welcomed Mr. Jean-Claude Trichet, former President of the European Central Bank, for our sixth edition in April 2015.
