Singapore Economic Development

The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) is the lead government agency for planning and executing strategies to enhance Singapore’s position as a global business centre. Our mission is to create for Singapore, sustainable economic growth with vibrant business and good job opportunities. The following key elements are essential in achieving our mission and vision

1. Attracting Investments We are a one-stop agency which facilitates and supports local and foreign investors in both manufacturing and services sectors, as they move up the value chain to achieve higher sustainable returns and seek out new business opportunities.

2. Growing Industry Verticals While Singapore commands global leadership in many areas, we focus on expanding and extending existing industry verticals. Exploring new growth areas will contribute towards creating good jobs and sustaining our competitiveness.

3. Enhancing Business Environment While interacting with investors and promoting investments, we provide feedback to other government agencies to ensure that infrastructure and public services remain efficient and cost-competitive. This ensures that Singapore maintains a premier pro-business environment.
