Explore New Markets: Doing Business in Singapore

About This Event


Are you looking to successfully start, expand or grow your UK business in Singapore?


Singapore is a wealthy city-state and is the leading financial, shipping and trade hub for the Asia Pacific region. For UK SMEs, Singapore is one of the easiest places in the world to start, run and do business (World Bank, 2019) as both economies have similar business & legal practices and share similar technical standards. In March 2019, the UK exported £8.8bn of goods and services to Singapore (ONS, 2019) providing a strong economic foundation and multiple advantages for UK businesses looking to establish an international presence.
