S'pore to host conference on Middle East
Singapore's hosting a conference next week, which will look at the issues and and challenges facing the Arab world in light of the Arab Uprisings.
It's organised by the Middle East Institute at the National University of Singapore.
The institute says since the extraordinary events of early 2012, living conditions for the majority of the working population in the Arab world have not changed for the better, and indeed if anything have worsened.
