  • Is the concept of trust “transferable” to different kinds of leadership in the society?
  • Singapore trade union, the private sector and the Government practise the concept of “tripartite partnership” and what role does trust play in here?
  • In what ways, if any, has the COVID -19 pandemic demanded the role of trust in leadership?
