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).
Selected participating delegates will have the opportunity to:
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.

Main mission will take place on Wednesday the 17 March 2021
A pre-mission briefing and on-screen pitching session will take place on the 2 March 2021
