Doing Business in Singapore

Doing business in Singapore Despite being a small island with no natural resources, the government has made all the right moves to encourage growth. As a result, the country boasts an advanced economy driven by transparency and cooperation, and doing business in Singapore is surprisingly easy.

What's more, Singapore has come first out of 189 countries in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Survey for several years in a row, based on criteria such as starting a business, protecting investors, paying taxes and trading across borders.

The country is considerably Westernised and boasts high living standards. But with a diverse population consisting of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Arab people, expats will need to familiarise themselves with local business culture and etiquette if they want to be successful in Singapore.
