The 1960s to 1980s was an important transition in Singapore’s business history. The creation of a new economy and political system signalled a significant shift in the business environment. Within the Chinese world of business, businessmen of traditionalist stock had to respond to these changes, but at the same time, preserve their position in their original business community. This paper aims to study the experience of Mr. Chua Poh Tiong as a case study to understand how traditionalist Chinese businessmen and Chinese enterprise responded to the changes in the business environment in locally and regionally during this period.
