Enterprise Nation's British Go Global Trade Mission to Singapore


View Event Page


This mission to Singapore in September 2017 is focused on digital, tech and creative businesses.

Singapore, ranked by the World Bank as the easiest place in the world to start, run and do business, is the UK's largest trading partner in South East Asia, with two thirds of British exports to the region heading into Singapore.

It is the perfect location for ambitious British brands with benefits including a common language, strong historical ties and similar business and legal practices. It is also recognised as having Asia's strongest intellectual property protection, with a highly skilled and educated local population.

The three-day mission from 20-24 September is open to just 25 brands who will gain:

- an understanding of the creative technology landscape in Singapore

- the ins and outs of tax, legal, trade and finance process and systems

- opportunity to make sales, connections and collaborations with local agencies, government representatives, accelerators and your fellow mission goers

- meetings with entrepreneurs who will share their learnings and successes
