Singapore’s strategic location in Asia makes it an ideal gateway for doing business with other parts of Asia and Middle East.
Both organisations and individuals benefit from the wellspring of business networks, contacts and referrals that arise from this confluence of vibrant and cross-cultural business and professional activity, with English as the main language of exchange.
Government organisations such as Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE) and business organisations such as the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry offer business assistance and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs.
Individuals can join professional organisations to develop their skills and contacts in their field, such as The Law Society of Singapore and the Academy of Medicine, Singapore. Or approach networking organisations such as Business Network International for help with business and job referrals.
International conferences and exhibitions – a major industry in Singapore – are another area where business and work contacts are widely cultivated.
An easier and more social option is to get plugged into an expatriate community or business association. See Community for a list of options.
