Why Singapore?
At the crossroad of international trade routes and the junction of East and West, Singapore is a top-class world
city to live, work and play. The multi-cultural cosmopolitan city is the most competitive in Asia and is officially the
world’s easiest place to do business. Since 14 consecutive years Singapore is ranked second as the city with the
best investment potential worldwide.

The city is Asia’s most “network ready” country and is rated to have Asia’s best business environment. The
workforce is the best skilled in Asia Pacific and the most motivated in the region while labour regulations are the
most business conducive in Asia.

Foreign talent is very welcome and immigration laws are the least restrictive in the world. Companies benefit from
a range of Free Trade Agreements, Double Taxation Agreements while being served by over 500 local and
foreign financial services and more than 4,500 companies offering services such as audit and accounting,
management consulting, market research, legal and human capital services.

The Government is well known for its pro-business policy regardless of world economic situations and crisis,
while promoting assets such as integrity, quality, reliability, productivity, rule of law and enforcement of
intellectual property rights.

Besides, Singapore is a top transportation hub for sea and air cargo with its busy container ports hosting 200
shipping lines with links to 600 ports in over 120 countries. Changi International Airport offers over 4,000 weekly
flights into 57 countries.

Cultural Practices for Doing Business in Singapore
Business Cards

After initial introduction Business (name) cards are exchanged with both hands. Examine the card
carefully before putting them in a business card case. Treat the card with respect. This is indicative
of how one will treat the relationship.

Communication Styles in Singapore

Due to the diverse ethnic mix in Singapore, there are 4 languages in common usage - Malay,
Mandarin Chinese, Tamil and English.

English is widely used as the 'common' language because of its apparent neutrality as well as its
importance in the international business arena. Many Singaporean schools run the curriculum in
English. Therefore, levels of English are extremely good in Singapore and foreign business people
who also have a good command of the English language will have little difficulty communicating.

As in many Asian cultures, 'no' is a difficult word and other ways of expressing disagreement
should be sought. Disagreement can affect the harmony of the situation as well as possibly making
somebody lose face and needs to be avoided. Vagueness and substitutions are often used to avoid
disagreement. Thus 'no' becomes, 'Yes, but it might be difficult' and 'yes' might merely imply 'I
have understood your point.' It is therefore important that everything, which is said, is not taken
literally.

Ask lots of open questions and go over important points several times. However, should your
probing reveal a flaw in the logic of an argument or an actual mistake, try not to point it out in
public. Be aware of the 'face' of the other side. Pay attention to non-verbal communication (facial
expression, tone of voice and posture).

Humour can often be misunderstood or not understood at all and as such is best avoided. It is
better to underplay your personal merits, majoring rather on the merits of your organisation or
department. Conversation about deeply personal issues should be avoided, as should comments
about the Singaporean 'system'

Singaporean Meetings

Appointments are necessary and should be made at least 2 weeks in advance, whenever possible.
The most formal way to schedule a meeting is to write to the person concerned, although most
Singaporeans will schedule an appointment by telephone, fax or email. One should arrive at a
meeting on time. Punctuality is a virtue, as lateness implies a lack of respect.


It is important that meetings should remain as harmonious and non-confrontational as possible,
with due regard being given to the preservation of 'face'. Thus, it could be very detrimental to the
long-term health of any business relationship should a meeting descend into openly expressed
frustrations. Bear in mind that the quality of the relationship is the key determinant of a successful
and mutually fruitful partnership. (Although, once again, when dealing with Western educated
Singaporeans working with MNC's, it is possible to encounter US style frankness.)

The focus of any meeting should be on co-operation and the preservation of harmony. Therefore, it
is often a good idea to let any sticking points drop, returning to them later through another
approach or even saving them for later in the negotiation process when further progress has been
made and the relationship has been further strengthened

Respect should be given to the hierarchy during the meeting, which includes thoughtful pauses
prior to answering questions posed by Senior Managers. Do not leave your junior members to deal
with their senior team whilst you attend to something more important!
Building Relationships

Personal relationships are the cornerstone of all business relationships. Business is a matter of
being tied into the proper network which is the result of long standing personal relationships or
proper introductions. This is a group-oriented culture, so links are often based on ethnicity,
education or working for the same company. Relationships take time to develop. One must be
patient as this indicates that your organisation is here for the long term and not looking for short
term gains. Rank is always respected. Most Singaporeans are soft-spoken and believe a calm
demeanour is superior to a more aggressive style. Watch one’s body language and facial
expressions (non-verbal communication).

Management Style in Singapore

As befits a hierarchical structure, Managers tend to be older which in itself lends them an air of
authority. As in the rest of Asia, age still implies wisdom and people will be more comfortable
dealing with an older Manager than a young 'whizz-kid'. Managers delegate decisions to their
teams and expect the decisions to be overtly respected. This does not mean, however, that the
rationale behind the decision is never debated - it is merely that any dissension is likely to be aired
in a more private manner than in the full view of an open meeting. (This, again, may not hold true
when dealing with a Singapore-based MNC.)

As in all basically Confucian business cultures, the Manager expects to be respected and obeyed
and in return for loyalty and dedication to the cause, he will show a much more holistic interest in
the wellbeing of his team. This includes an almost paternal regard for many aspects of a
subordinate's life. The Manager's relationship with the team does not necessarily finish at the end
of the working day

Outside family ties, promotion will be based on merit and performance criteria rather than
connections. The performance criteria may, however, differ from those in the West and top of the
list may be the ability to create a harmonious team in which people feel at ease

Gift Giving

The government has introduced very tight legislation governing the issues around gift giving -
wishing to avoid the corruption scandals which have tainted other Asian societies in the past. It is,
therefore, less common for gifts to be given and received in Singapore than in many other
countries in the region.

It is possibly better to give one gift to the group as a whole, but if individual gifts are to be given
they should be merely tokens (pens with corporate logos etc.) As with other Asian countries, gifts
should be wrapped and are unlikely to be opened in front of the giver.

Dress Code

Due to its position on the equator, Singapore is hot and humid all year round. Dress codes in
business reflect the climatic conditions and tend to be more informal than in many Western
countries or even other Asian countries such as Japan and Korea

Thus, men will often wear shirt and trousers with no tie (jackets are not usually worn.) Colours can
be lighter than the dark blues and greys of the UK and Japan.

Women tend to wear lightweight business suits. Accessories should be of good quality but not
overly ostentatious
