The FEC oversees the implementation of the recommendations put forth by the Committee on the Future Economy (CFE), and will build on the work of the earlier Council for Skills, Innovation and Productivity, which includes SkillsFuture initiatives and Industry Transformation Maps. SBF supports the work of the FEC and actively organises activities to help businesses in their transformation journey.
