Business ExpansionStrategically located in the heart of Asia, Singapore is well-known for its pro-business environment, with excellent infrastructure and a highly-trained, educated and skilled workforce. Singapore’s 20 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) connect it to other major economies and emerging markets, giving Singapore-based exporters and investors a wealth of benefits including tariff concessions, faster entry and preferential access to certain sectors and Intellectual Property protection.
As Singapore’s apex business chamber, SBF acts in the interest of the business community, promoting trade expansion and business networking in Singapore and abroad. SBF’s established business and government sector network spans the globe – as testament to that, the Federation receives over 100 incoming business delegations and leads close to 40 overseas missions every year.
Companies looking to expand their global footprint can tap on SBF’s services to learn more about new and emerging markets, or to participate in overseas missions. Businesses that are thinking of establishing business operations in Singapore can leverage SBF’s AccessAsia programme, which provides advisory services such as business matching.
In assisting members to expand overseas, SBF has also made various dispute resolution channels available to members such as the ICC Court of Arbitration, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the Singapore International Mediation Centre and the Singapore Mediation Centre.
