Trading Inspirations

As part of work, I attended the launch of the book “Economic Diplomacy: Essays and Reflections by Singapore’s Negotiators”.

Foreign Minister George Yeo was the guest of honor. He said (and I paraphrased):

The growth of civilisation was possible because of the division of labor. With division of labor, there is a need for trade to send things across to one another. Trade is the lifeblood of civilisation.”

I’m rejuvenated by these words. Somedays, I just need that bit of inspiration to push me on.
