VIRTUAL TRADE MISSION TO SINGAPORE
Online Trade Mission – A Series of Events
Virtual Trade Mission to Singapore
The Department for International Trade (DIT), in collaboration with Barclay’s Eagle Labs, welcomes innovative UK companies in Lawtech and Professional Services to participate in a virtual trade mission to Singapore from 28-31 March 2022, shortly after the signing of the UK-Singapore Digital Economy Agreement (DEA) – the world’s most comprehensive digital trade agreement
About the Mission
The mission will include a range of sessions all with the aim of fostering commercial and co-innovation partnerships between organisations in the UK and Singapore.
Why Consider Singapore – the impact of the DEA
A third of UK exports to Singapore are already digitally delivered, including in finance, advertising and enginerring, and this deal will create new opportunites to expand digital trade. Services companies will be the big winners.
Wide-ranging benefits include better data flows, stronger cybersecurity and closer links between two hi-tech and services hubs.
The DEA will be the first trade agreement in the world to include specific commitments on technology in legal services (Lawtech). The UK and Singapore will establish a dialogue on the use of technology to deliver legal services. They will share knowledge and encourage suppliers of Lawtech to explore business opportunites in the other’s markets.
Benefits to Companies
- Companies selected for this trade mission will have the opportunity to take part in an exclusive reverse pitching session from a Singapore based Law Firm and significant purchaser of business services
- Companies will have the opportunity to undertake pitches to prospective buyers
