About Singapore

With its strategic geographical location, Singapore is well-positioned as the gateway to Southeast Asia’s marketplace of close to 600 million people and Asia’s population of 4.1 billion. The country’s comprehensive trade and transportation networks provide companies with unparalleled market access and trade flows globally.

The Republic has the most extensive network of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) in Asia, a comprehensive list of financial incentive schemes for companies, and boasts one of the world’s lowest corporate tax rates at 17%. The pro-business climate has attracted close to 7,000 multinational companies to set up operations in Singapore to-date, and ranks as the world’s easiest place to do business in the World Bank’s report “Doing Business in 2012″.

With its headquarters in Singapore, and over 40 years of experience in the local market, Boardoom is well-placed to connect global companies using the city-state as a springboard to tap into Asian growth opportunities, as well as Asian businesses looking to access global markets.
