H.E. Scott Wightman
His Excellency Scott Wightman, British High Commissioner


I am continually impressed by the strength and dynamism of the British business community here.


Among the 4000 UK companies that have made a second home in Singapore are some of the most innovative and creative businesses anywhere in the world, representing the whole range of sectors, industries and specialities from global brands to innovative start-ups.


Singapore is famed for the ease of setting up and doing business here and its zero tolerance approach to corruption, making it a trustworthy and natural partner for UK businesses looking to expand into Southeast Asia as well as North and South Asia.


The British High Commission, Singapore and the Department for International Trade are pleased to partner the British Chamber of Commerce in helping businesses to explore and enter markets in the region. The Chamber's work not only supports UK investors looking for opportunities in Singapore but also helps to increase British exports to the region and encourages Singapore and regional inward investment into the UK.


BritCham has over the years become an essential part of ministerial and high-level visits to Singapore. This reflects the Chamber's influence and effectiveness in reaching out to the business and investment communities here, underscoring its important role in advancing the UK's prosperity agenda in the region.


As the UK charts a new, global course, the partnership between BritCham and the British High Commission becomes even more important, contributing to the growth of British businesses in the UK, in Singapore and in the region.
