AmCham Farewells Ambassador and Mrs. Wagar

Amb Sponsors

AmCham thanks departing U.S. Ambassador Kirk Wagar and Mrs. Crystal Wagar for their unstinting support for the business community and AmCham.  We could not have asked for more dedicated, energetic, and committed envoys.  They have promoted ever stronger ties between Singapore and the United States and creatively and tirelessly encouraged entrepreneurship, start-ups, and daring-ness.  With our regional focus here in Singapore, Ambassador Wagar promoted sound policies and strong relationships around ASEAN.  Every single one of his trips back to the United States included seminars, roundtables, and meetings in cities across the United States on why Singapore and ASEAN matter for U.S. business.


AmCham members had the opportunity to thank the Wagars in person at AmCham’s farewell “A Miami Evening in Singapore” reception on January 12.  Minister for Industry and Trade S Iswaran and AmCham Board Chairman Dwight Hutchins highlighted the contributions that the Wagars have made during their three-plus years here.  The evening was capped with the donation of $30,000 in honor of the Wagars to Special Olympics Singapore.  With thanks to them both, AmCham wishes Ambassador and Mrs. Wagar a smooth journey home.
