Singapore is a sovereign city-state, on a small island off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula.

The country is one of the world’s major commercial hubs, and is ranked the fourth biggest financial centre in the world.

The economy is largely dominated by the manufacturing, finance, and electronics industries, and is home to one of the top five busiest ports in the world.

Why choose Singapore?

The benefits of doing business in Singapore are plentiful — it's one of the main financial centres in the Asia-Pacific region, and indeed, the world.

It also has one of the freest and most business-friendly economies, making it an ideal region in which to establish your company. 

Costs are lower here compared to other Asian countries, and it is easy to travel to the rest of the continent for business. 

With a skilled workforce, low tax rates and corruption-free governance, Singapore is the ideal business destination.
