Singapore: Safe, Secure and Competitive
Liechtenstein and Singapore form an ideal partnership. Both countries can boast political stability, financial strength, entrepreneurial energy and an investor-friendly legislative environment.
Along with Tokyo and Hong Kong, Singapore has developed into a major Asian financial centre. Singapore is considered to be one of the Four Asian Tigers and is one of the world’s technological and financial centres, along with being a cultural centre for Asia.
Singapore is the third largest financial centre in the world and the top logistics hub, possessing the world’s 10th largest foreign reserve. Singapore has a highly developed economy that is both market and trade based. The country is also home to one of the busiest ports in the world. Its stock market is the largest in South-East Asia.This region places no restrictions on foreign exchange transactions or capital movements.
Singapore is an important international transportation centre in Asia, with many air and sea trade routes. Singapore is expected to overtake the UK by 2020 to become the world’s second-largest offshore financial centre behind Switzerland as the balance of global wealth moves steadily eastward.
Singapore's financial stability and investor appeal are underscored by its AAA rating and stringent banking laws – yet two more important features that it shares with Liechtenstein.
