Raising the capabilities of our companies

MTI seeks to ensure that Singapore remains a globally-competitive location for investments and businesses.  This means investments in programmes to raise the capabilities of our companies.  We have been supporting the growth of our SMEs at various stages of development through our agencies.

MTI agencies such as SPRING, EDB, IE Singapore, A*STAR, have various schemes in place, from nurturing start-ups and micro-enterprises to grooming companies to go regional and become globally competitive. We have seen good results and will continue to deepen the capabilities of our companies to achieve sustained growth as well as to seize opportunities in Asia.
