As the very first significant business platform following the recent 19th CPC National Congress, the Forum has a head start in encouraging vibrant business ties between Singapore and China. Four Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) will be signed at the Singapore-China Trade and Investment Forum – including the MOU renewal between SBF and CCPIT to intensify co-operation and partnership, MOU between CCPIT and Business China, and MOU between Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Singapore China Business Association. These commitments further affirm the close partnership between the Singapore and China business communities.

Important topics, including Trade and Investment Opportunities through Enhanced Partnership & Cooperation, Singapore as an Internationalization Hub for Chinese Companies, as well as Investment and Financing Opportunities under the Belt and Road Initiative will be shared by experts and speakers from both Singapore and China government agencies and business communities.
