The Welsh Government will take a high-profile trade mission to Singapore 8 – 15 July 2017
Fifteen businesses from a wide range of Welsh industries are prioritising expansion to the Singapore market.
Businesses from a range of sectors include the creative industries, life sciences, advanced manufacturing, ICT and food and drink, are among the export market visit heading to Singapore this month. These businesses represent the diversity of the Welsh economy and demonstrate that Wales is at the forefront of innovation, cutting edge technology and quality products.
Singapore is a leading global business hub, located where the major east and west shipping lanes converge. Singapore accounts for half of UK exports to ASEAN, worth £5.6 billion in 2014, although some will be re-exported elsewhere.
