Working in Singapore
In the course of just 50 years, Singapore has transformed itself from a British colonial trading post to a thriving global financial hub and modern metropolis. Known as one of Asia's economic "tigers" due to its strong economic fundamentals, Singapore has often been defined by quality, reliability and rule of law. Singapore has also distinguished itself as a prime destination for doing business, underpinned by a bedrock of stability, security and well-connected infrastructure. The island state’s economic engine is powered by a cosmopolitan workforce, with English as the preferred business language.
