Singapore isn’t just centrally located, it’s perfectly located.
With a population of over 640 million people, SE Asia is one of the most diverse and dynamic regions on the planet. Include China and India and that figure explodes to over 3.5billion people; quite a market place and opportunity to tap into.
Singapore is not only the leading financial and logistics hubs in the region, it’s also the leading light of ASEAN, regional advocate of free trade and according to the World Bank it continues to be the most convenient and commercially friendly country to do business in.
But what is it that attracts global enterprises like General Electric, Dyson and Air Liquide to Singapore?

By sea, Singapore port gives shippers a choice of over 200 shipping lines and access to some 600 ports in 123 countries. At any one time, there can be as many as 1,000 ships docked at Singapore port, which makes it the busiest container port in the world.
