Singapore is home to multinational companies with a wide range of industries and geographies. According to the World Bank’s Doing Business 2012, the country has been ranked as the world’s easiest place to do business for the sixth year in a row, as evidenced by numerous industries. Singapore’s strategic location enables companies to increase market access in terms of physical connectivity and through a wide network of international protocols.

With its multicultural society and industry diversity, Singapore has become a microcosm of Asia in many ways. It is a good test platform for innovative business solutions tailored to Asian needs. The widespread presence of multinational headquarters has made Singapore the launch pad for these innovative activities around the world.
Since 1997, Singapore has been ranked as the most protective intellectual property system in Asia by political and economic risk consulting firms, and Singapore is a reliable repository of knowledge.
