The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), a government agency under the Ministry of Trade and Industry, is responsible for strategies that enhance Singapore’s position as a global centre for business, innovation, and talent.
Our mission is to create sustainable economic growth, with vibrant business and good job opportunities for Singapore.
We undertake investment promotion and industry development in the manufacturing and internationally tradeable services sectors. Industries within our purview account for more than a third of Singapore’s annual GDP. Besides facilitating investments, we engage Singapore’s existing base of companies to transform their operations and boost productivity, and to generate growth in adjacent and disruptive areas by growing new businesses out of Singapore.
We work with companies by providing information, connection to partners and access to government incentives for their investments, as well as their transformation and growth initiatives. We also work closely with other Singapore government agencies to constantly improve our pro-business environment, and ensure that our industries are supported by a globally competitive workforce through talent development.
