IN the May 2, 2018, issue of Export Unlimited, a story titled “PHL receives $185.7-M investment pledges from Singapore companies” included a paragraph that said “Trade Secretary Ramon M. Lopez also signed an LOI with Asean Business Advisory Council Chairman Robert Yap, which involves a feasibility study on a suitable site for the implementation of a free online marketplace, SGConnect legacy project.”

In an e-mail to the BusinessMirror dated May 4, 2018, Daniel Wong, assistant manager, Executive Chairman’s Office of the YCH Group Singapore, said, “To be clear, the SGConnect legacy project is not a free online marketplace, and is not related to the web site—  https://www.sgconnect.sg. Rather, the legacy project aims to facilitate integration of Asean states while catering for the envisioned pressure of rapid urbanization.”
