Ambassador Ong was accompanied by Dr. Tan Teck Boon and Ms Tan Ming Hui, RSIS Research Fellows, and Mr. Boon Beng Lee, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Singapore Embassy in Berlin.

The get-to-know and exchange of thought circled around the topics of public policy making and scientific advice in the comparative contexts of Singapur and Germany, as well as on current issues of global and European politics.

Concurrently to his Executive Deputy Chairmanship at RSIS, Ambassador Ong Keng Yong is Singapore's non-resident High Commissioner to Pakistan and non-resident Ambassador to Iran.  Beforehand, he was High Commissioner of Singapore to Malaysia from 2011 to 2014 and Secretary-General of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), based in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 2003 to 2008.
