Singapore

IT WAS a night of glitz and glamour as the Singapore business community came together to celebrate the top 50 privately-held companies at the Enterprise 50 (E50) Awards gala dinner on Nov 15. The occasion is regarded as one of the most prestigious on the business calendar and the attendees were all dressed to impress at the annual black-tie event held at Resorts World Sentosa.

The E50 Awards - jointly organised by KPMG and The Business Times - is now in its 22nd year. It was graced by Chan Chun Sing, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office who is also the deputy chairman of the Committee on the Future Economy.

Top honours went to homegrown shipping firm BLPL Singapore, which managed to thrive in spite of the downturn affecting the maritime sector. Internet company Garena clinched second place while UEMS, a service provider for hospitals and government buildings, came in third.
