PwC, in partnership with the UK-ASEAN Business Council, would like to invite you to a breakfast seminar entitled ‘Invest in Singapore – Your Gateway to Asia.’ The event is aimed at any UK business considering investing in, trading with, or growing existing operations in Singapore and the ASEAN region. There continues to be many opportunities for UK businesses in Singapore and this seminar is designed to address some of the real practical matters that should be considered when looking to take advantage of these opportunities.
The event will be introduced by Mr Chia Wei Wen, the Deputy High Commissioner of Singapore to the UK, who will give his insight into the opportunities for UK companies in Singapore. This will be followed by PwC Singapore Tax Partner, Ms Florence Loh, who will share information on incentives available to businesses in Singapore, the tax system and common business models used for investment. Mr Andy Cheah, UK General Manager from United Overseas Bank, will share some practical guidance on banking in Singapore and the ASEAN region and then Mr Craig Watson, Strategy Director from FST Creative Agency, a UK company that has successfully invested in Singapore, will share his insight into how he did it and what the future holds for his business.
