Innovation and productivity continue to be the focus and key drivers of Singapore's economy, and its continued growth and prosperity depends on the ability to create innovative and differentiated products and services that the world demands.


Singapore’s vibrant business community has, over the years, demonstrated its ability to continuously innovate, evolve and become instrumental towards the nation’s economic progress. Hence, the British Chamber, through the Annual Business Awards aims to acknowledge and honour companies with enterprising and creative spirits who continuously contribute to the Singapore success story.


Companies entering the Awards were required to showcase achievements that are Singapore-centric thus, building on Singapore’s brand image. The Awards are open not only to British companies but also all Singapore registered companies regardless of membership with the Chamber. 


BCCS President, Hugo Walkinshaw said: “The business community in Singapore continues to show a high level of engagement & enthusiasm with the Annual Business Awards, demonstrated by the consistently high quality of this year’s submissions, and I am delighted to see the level of commitment shown by entrants from across the spectrum of corporate and SME organizations. This reinforces the strength of the ongoing relationship between Singapore and Britain, and is an area that the chamber will continue to focus on in conjunction with UKTI and the British High Commission.”


The Awards are supported by key organisations such as Singapore’s Economic Development Board, Singapore Business Federation, UK Trade & Investment, European Chamber of Commerce and The Straits Times as an Exclusive Media Partner.
