This is long overdue. I attended the seminar by Olga Mikheeva (PhD candidate and Junior Research Fellow, Tallinn University of Technology) on 8 Oct 2015 at the EU Centre, Singapore. The centre was ‘… established in mid-2008 as a partnership of National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and co-funded by the European Union’.
Just one interesting tidbit:
In colonial times, the Chinese bankers took in deposits while the foreign banks provided the international networks and provided forex (foreign exchange) services. These two groups formed a symbiotic relationship.
