SINGAPORE is known as a foodie haven, and a place to do business.
Both are exciting in their own way.
The variety of cuisines and price points makes it affordable for a wide range of pockets.
Singapore’s safety, security practices and reputation for going by the book makes it exciting for businesses keen on reaching a regional market.

The WED WEB CHAT — How To Make Singapore Exciting? raised a variety of issues and suggestions to help elevate the Republic’s excitement levels.
