Early September saw the official inauguration of the Enterprise Estonia Singapore office. The Estonian Minister of Entrepreneurship, Ms. Liisa Oviir, together with Singaporean Minister of State for Trade and Industry Dr. Koh Poh Koon, gave their blessing to this new link between the two modern, go-ahead countries.
Enterprise Estonia Singapore will be promoting trade relations with Singapore and connecting the booming start-up community in Estonia with Asian venture capital as well as providing Singapore as a launch pad to the South-East Asian region. Estonia in return offers opportunities for e-Residency to South-East Asia business people for easy access to the EU and managing their EU businesses.
Many Estonian companies have found their way to Singaporean markets including Saku Brewery, Chaga Health and Milrem, all of which are great examples of ongoing co-operation.
Former Head of the Estonian Investment Agency Mr. Indrek Pällo has taken up the position as Chief Representative Officer in Singapore and has made it his personal mission to create strong business ties between the two countries.
