Now that host country Singapore has been given the "all-clear" signal by the World Health Organization, SWIFT's Sibos 2003 conference seems all set to proceed as scheduled, from October 20 to 24.

Now that host country Singapore has been given the "all-clear" signal by the World Health Organization, SWIFT's Sibos 2003 conference seems all set to proceed as scheduled, from October 20 to 24. The apropos theme: "New Realities."

This year, the speaker line-up includes Brett Goodin, president of Fidelity Investment Management Asia/Pacific; Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Singapore's Senior Minister of State, Trade and Industry; and Vincent Cheng, CEO of Hang Seng Bank and Group General Manager of HSBC. Sixty-six other speakers have also confirmed their participation.

The annual Sibos conference was scheduled to take place in Singapore in October 2001, but was canceled due to post-September 11 security concerns. The final go/no-go decision for 2003 Sibos will be announced June 27. Updates can be found on the Web at the organization's web site, www.swift.com.
