About the event

In the year to March 2019, the UK exported £8.8bn of goods and services to Singapore. It is often seen as an ideal landing pad for breaking into the broader ASEAN markets; with favourable tax incentives, ease of doing business, and a progressive ecosystem of support for new entrants, it is the UK’s largest trading partner in South East Asia, making it a good place from which to seek business opportunities in the wider region (ONS, 2019).

There are opportunities for UK companies across a broad range of industries such as the fintech and technology sectors. Technology is a priority industry for Singapore and receives support from both government and the private sector. As such Singapore is considered the most innovative country in Asia, (WIPO, 2019).

What Are the Benefits?

Selected participating delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive extensive support throughout and following the mission
  • Attend a pre-mission briefing and on-screen pitching session on 2 March 2021
  • Access a bespoke one-to-one business matchmaking programme with a minimum of four meetings with potential local partners on 17 March 2021
  • Attend a post mission session to exchange peer-to-peer best practices and review follow-up actions

Join this Northern Powerhouse virtual mission to get a guided insight into these important sectors in Singapore, and to be introduced to potential business contacts.
