Singapore is a natural hub for business activities in Southeast Asia and beyond


Singapore's conducive business environment stems from foreign direct investments, investments abroad, and the country's status as a key global trading hub.


Singapore is the world’s 38th largest economy with a GDP of USD 383.4 billion and a population of 5.4 million, which yields a GDP per capita of USD 70,298.6 (2021). The country has leveraged on its geographical location to establish an efficient logistics hub and a financial center. As a gateway to ASEAN, a region comprising 10 countries, Singapore provides access to an economic bloc with a GDP USD 3.1 trillion.


Singapore has pro-business policies to attract investments and companies to establish here, including:

  • It is simple and convenient to do business in Singapore. Singapore is ranked number 2 in World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business (2021).

  • The use of English in education and business.

  • A high-skilled work force.

  • Pro-business legislation and favorable tax rates.

  • Political stability, with high compliance requirements for transparency and corporate governance. Singapore was ranked number one in political and operational stability.

  • Effective protection of patents with world-class patent court.
