Ahead of our flagship event at the International Festival of Business 2016, Meet Your Global Business Network, we look at the opportunities for British firms in Singapore

Sitting centrally in South East Asia, Singapore is ideally located for British businesses looking to access one of the most exciting and profitable regions in the global economy.

Recognised by the World Bank as the easiest place to open, run and conduct business and located on historically commercial maritime and aviation routes, Singapore is globally renowned as a key logistical hub that sits at the heart of international trade.

British firms looking to engage with the Singaporean market and capitalise on recent growth in the wider region are attracted to Singapore for the fact it can serve as a gateway to other nations not only in South East Asia, but the whole Asian continent. With strong IP protection, a highly skilled and educated population and 50% of the world’s population within a 6 hour flight, Singapore is a market with tremendous opportunity.

Whilst all industries and sectors are of interest, there are more prospects for UK businesses in the following areas;

  • Aerospace
  • Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering
  • Clean Energy
  • Financial & Professional Services
  • Smart Technologies

Interested in discovering more? ‘Meet Your Global Business Network’ will return as part of IFB2016 on Thursday 16th June. You’ll have the chance to participate in a 1-2-1 meeting with Brigitte Holtschneider, Executive Director of the British Chamber of Commerce, Singapore.

Brigitte will be one of many regional specialists joining us on the day, over 30+ international markets have currently confirmed including: Latin America, South East Asia/Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

On the day, keynote speakers will set the scene on emerging markets for global businesses, you can attend breakout panel sessions with specific markets and we’ll facilitate 1-2-1 meetings on your behalf, ensuring you to setup the relationships and support needed for your exporting journey.
