Singapore is a small country, with a population of 5.8 million people. Its main economy has been derived by leveraging on international trade because of its location, in the heart of the Asia Pacific. This places Singapore as a gateway for doing business in the Asia Pacific and more immediately in Southeast Asia.
It is becoming an increasingly popular destination to do business because it is safe, the government is transparent and people speak English, making it easy for companies to hit the ground running. Singapore boasts a great financial hub, industry leading ports, cutting edge research and state of the art innovation and infrastructure. As such, it is becoming an important place for Canadians to expand their businesses.
Singapore is Southeast Asia’s second-largest foreign direct investment destination for Canadian companies. Singapore has an annual GDP of US$307.87 billion and imports more than $1.3 billion in Canadian merchandise annually.
