Located at the heart of Southeast Asia, Singapore is well placed to serve the fast-growing markets of the Asia-Pacific region. Financial institutions in Singapore also trade around-the-clock with Asia-Pacific centres, as well as European and American centres, making Singapore a significant hub for 24-hour trading in foreign exchange and securities. International travel is equally convenient. Singapore has grown to be a strategic link and important gateway for global investors.
Singapore remains connected to growth markets, not just in Asia but also beyond. Singapore has concluded Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with major economies, including the United States, China, Japan, India, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and Jordan. There are ongoing FTA talks with other countries. These FTAs provide privileged access to the markets of partner countries. Beyond the immediate region, Singapore is also building linkages with countries further a-field including the Middle East, capitalising on the growing trade and investment interests between these two regions.
As an international financial centre, Singapore offers financial institutions a pro-business environment, excellent infrastructure, cost-competitiveness, a highly skilled and cosmopolitan labour force.
