Distribution and transshipment

Southeast Asia (SEA) is home to 680 million people – third-largest population after China and India. Despite global uncertainty, this region is a top emerging market – with economic growth averaging above 5% and potential to become the fourth largest economy globally by 2030. The promising outlook presents business potential and expansion opportunities for global companies.

For businesses relooking their supply chain, SEA provides access to various markets with expertise on different supply chain functions. Singapore in particular, excels in moving products worldwide with its connectivity and Free Trade Agreements. Besides production, SEA is also an attractive market for businesses targeting growing consumer groups.

Organised by Enterprise Singapore and Southeast Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence (SEA CAPE), this webinar will (i) improve the accessibility of SEA market for New Zealand businesses by using Singapore as a strategic node within the SEA network and (ii) foster collaboration between Singapore and New Zealand businesses.

Hear from industry experts on how you can take advantage of Singapore as a logistic hub to strengthen the resilience and agility of your business’ supply chain!
