Singapore Tech & Advanced Manufacturing Trade Mission 2019

The World Trade Centre Toronto (WTC-T) is convening a Tech & Advanced Manufacturing trade mission to Singapore from November 11-16, helping Canadian companies to grow their business activities and footprint in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Singapore is not only a hub for research, science and innovation but is also a signatory to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) opening international opportunities for Canadian firms.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to attend the Singapore Week of Innovation & Technology (SWITCH) as well as Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF), two of the most prominent global technology exhibitions dedicated to innovative and disruptive technologies. The show will attract leading investors, regulators, adopters, entrepreneurs, and emerging technology companies from around the world. The program will allow delegates the opportunity to connect with best in class subject matter experts, visit ecosystem hotbeds, and have privately curated business-to-business meetings with buyers and go-to-market partners.
