WHAT WE DO
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. EDB dreams, designs and delivers solutions that create value for investors and companies in Singapore. Our mission is to create for Singapore, sustainable economic growth with vibrant business and good job opportunities. EDB’s ‘Home’ strategy articulates how we are positioning Singapore for the future. It is about extending Singapore's value proposition to businesses not just to help them improve their bottom line, but also to help them grow their top line through establishing and deepening strategic activities in Singapore to drive their business, innovation and talent objectives in Asia and globally.
We are a one-stop agency which facilitates and supports local and foreign investors in both the manufacturing and services sectors, as they move up the value chain to achieve higher sustainable returns and seek out new business opportunities.
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 Singapore's competitiveness.
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; so that Singapore maintains its premier pro-business environment.
EDB is the compass in preparing the nation for the future. While we have established a strong position in the global economy, more needs to be done in this increasingly competitive environment in order to safeguard the city's standing in the region and beyond.
