Doing Business in Singapore
APRIL 14, 2020
The Malaysian island of Singapore was originally known as Temasek (“Sea Town”) after the first settlers found it in AD 1298-1299. In 1819, the British East India Company established a trading settlement on the island, which set modern Singapore into motion. In 1963, Singapore joined the Malaysian federation but became independent two years later. Singapore is one of the most prosperous countries in the world with its strong international trading links and busy ports.
