The Republic of Singapore is an ideal location for doing business.
Singapore has a record of political stability, low corruption and transparency. Its business environment is conducive to foreign investment and as a base to locate regional headquarters. It has been consistently ranked as the world's easiest place to do business by the World Bank since 2006 (Doing Business Report) and has been judged the second most competitive country in the world since 2011 by the World Economic Forum (Global Competitiveness Report). By setting up shop here, companies also benefit from Singapore's network of free trade agreements with the world's largest economies and double taxation avoidance schemes.
