About IE Singapore

International Enterprise (IE) Singapore is the government agency driving Singapore’s external economy. For the past 30 years, we have been spearheading the overseas growth of Singapore-based companies and promoting international trade. Our vision is a thriving business hub in Singapore with Globally Competitive Companies (GCCs) and leading international traders.

Trade has always been the backbone of Singapore’s economy. In addition to promoting export of goods and services, IE Singapore also attracts global commodities traders to establish their global or Asian home base in Singapore. Today, Singapore is a thriving trading hub with a complete ecosystem for the energy, agri-commodities and metals & minerals trading clusters.

GCCs are a critical growth engine for the next phase of Singapore’s development. GCCs compete on the global stage against the very best in their industries. They contribute to Singapore’s economic resilience, develop Singaporeans into global business leaders and strengthen the Singapore brand. Through our Global Company Partnership, we work with Singapore-based companies in their various stages of growth towards being globally competitive. We customise total solutions in capability building, market access and financing for these companies as they internationalise.

Our global network of overseas centres in over 35 locations provides the necessary connections in many developed and emerging markets.
