CABC members joined EDC’s upcoming webinar, Singapore: Your Gateway to Asia-Pacific Markets on May 9.

The informative webinar educated participant on how Singapore’s excellent infrastructure, competitive tax rates and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) are helping Canadian companies springboard into a wider marketplace with more than 3.5 billion potential customers.

The importance of Canada’s trade relationship with Singapore can’t be overstated. With merchandise exports averaging $1.4 billion and service exports reaching $749 million in 2016 alone, the country offers huge opportunities for Canadian companies. Plus, Singapore serves as a gateway to other Asian markets, giving businesses the power to multiply the number of countries they can access.
