It serves as a well-established hub for services such as software and IT, business and finance. The large population of expats results from its many benefits such as a thriving economy and efficient infrastructure. Singapore is known for governing with integrity, making it one of the easiest places to do business.

ChinaThe People’s Republic of China welcomes many foreign businesses, in the high-tech, agricultural and telecommunications just to name a few. Its access to a continually growing market, skilled labour force and rapidly growing economy are just some of the many reasons why China is an increasingly principal location for companies.
