Collaboration in the Global Market ft Png Cheong Boon, CEO, Enterprise Singapore

Singapore has placed great emphasis in strengthening the business capabilities of our local companies as well as enhancing the country’s position as an international hub for trade, innovation and startups. Given our strategic location as the gateway to Asia, Singapore companies make good partners to foreign businesses to expand into the rapidly growing region.
