In the future, ASEAN may become the fourth largest single market in the world, and Singapore, as an important hub in the world and Asia, is an excellent starting point for enterprises to enter the ASEAN market. The Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry encourages Sichuan enterprises to seek new business opportunities in the ASEAN market through Singapore, and the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry will also provide assistance for Singapore enterprises to explore the Chinese market.

The entry into force and implementation of RCEP will further promote trade and commercial links between Singapore, China and other RCEP countries. With its special geographical location, logistics and Trade Center advantages, and highly developed business environment, Singapore has spawned a high-quality business service industry, helping enterprises expand overseas markets. As a government agency leading the development of Singapore enterprises, the Singapore enterprise development authority welcomes and supports more cooperation between Xinchuan enterprises.
