Identifying a supplier in Singapore

Type of Production
For the resources for businesses on managing the manufacturing and the supply chain risk due to the outbreak of the Covid19 pandemic, please consult the report COVID-19: Managing supply chain risk and disruption (Deloitte Canada, 2020), as well as the insights on COVID-19: How to fortify your supply chain (Kearney, 2020).
The World Economic Forum's COVID Action Platform provides useful information on the latest strategic trends regarding COVID-19 implications for businesses, including manufacturing and supply systems. The report Outbreak Readiness and Business Impact (World Economic Forum in collaboration with the Harvard Global Health Institute) offers insights on handling coronavirus by businesses and strategies for effective response and resilience.

Manufacturing and services are the twin engines of Singapore's economy and account respectively for about 20% and 70.4% of the country's GDP. Electronics and chemicals are the two leading sectors of the manufacturing industry. The industrial sector constitutes 24.5% of Singapore's GDP in 2019 (World Bank).

To maintain its competitive position despite rising wages, the Government seeks to promote higher value-added activities in the manufacturing and services sectors. It also has opened the financial services, telecommunications, power generation and retailing sectors to foreign service providers to promote greater competition.
