The Foreign Interference (Countermeasures) Act (FICA) is a law recently passed in Parliament to enable the government to counter foreign interference in Singapore’s domestic politics conducted through hostile information campaigns and the use of local proxies. However, there have been questions about FICA’s precise reach and how it will be operationalised.
The dialogue session is for MHA to share more about FICA and for members of the international chambers to share concerns or feedback, such as on whether foreign companies and foreign employees speaking in either their personal or business capacity need to be worried about FICA, and whether the international business community needs to be mindful of certain boundaries when advocating for business-related policies in Singapore.
