  • Singapore

Singapore is a highly sophisticated economy and is Asia’s financial and transport centre.

It is a country of priority for South Australia in two-way trade and investment, and is a central access point to neighbouring markets within the region.

Singapore is developing into a major hub for global and regional supply chains, particularly in resources, manufacturing and food.

Sector opportunities

Food and agribusiness

Centres of excellence in food and agricultural research and production will help South Australian companies export ideas, intellectual capital, products and services.

Education, research and development

Education represents opportunities for increased partnerships with education providers to showcase South Australia’s world-class capabilities, and the quality of higher and vocation education.

Professional services

Regional integration has been an important feature of South East Asia’s economic and political rise and provides ongoing opportunity for engagement and involvement of South Australia’s professional services sector. 

Defence and advanced manufacturing

Building on strong bilateral links, South Australia is well positioned to engage with Singapore through defence equipment and test and training opportunities.

Health and aged care

Singapore is forecast to become an aged society in less than five years and, with rising health care costs, there is a need for advanced and cost-effective medical devices and equipment, along with health infrastructure. 

Tourism, arts and culture

Direct flight access, growth in flight capacity, competition between carriers and a compatible time zone are factors that place South Australia in a good position to expand into the Singaporean market.

Foreign direct investment

The establishment of the Investment Attraction South Australia agency provides an opportunity to promote significant investment projects within South Australia.

Emerging exporters

Singapore has a range of needs that align with the strengths of South Australia and is a relatively easy market for emerging or new exporters.
