It plays an important role in promoting business, education, culture, and community development both in Singapore and abroad. Before and after the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Singapore, the SCCCI has been actively promoting economic and trade cooperation between the two countries, encouraging Singaporean enterprises to invest and develop in China, and assisting the Chinese government and enterprises in conducting business activities and investment in Singapore.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relationship between China and Singapore and the 5th anniversary of the implementation of the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity (CCI).
