A city-state in Asia that’s very small in size compared to its neighbours, but bigger than anyone else in many ways. Singapore was the first Asian country to sign a free trade agreement with the EU, just another driver that has led to steady economic growth over the medium term. Great living conditions and business opportunities have drawn expats to this small island for many years.
It’s known as a great place to do business and almost everybody speaks English, as it is one of the official languages. Business culture is very similar to western countries in Europe. Punctuality is important, exchanging business cards is part of protocol and trust is a big thing in doing business so invest time in relationships and networking.
Although Singapore is quite small and exploring the country’s splendour and beauty probably won’t take you very long, the country is surrounded by a wide variety of beautiful countries that all have a rich culture and amazing places to visit.
Singapore is a really modern place to live with the cost of living being similar to Western countries. Education, health care, infrastructure are all of the highest standards. There is a large expat community and you can find people from all over the world in Singapore.
