The Department for International Trade (DIT) is inviting UK retailers for an opportunity to join an e-commerce trade mission to showcase British products in Singapore at a 4-day eCommerce Expo Asia, which will be held from 10 October 2022 to 14 October 2022.
Singapore is the powerhouse of Southeast Asia, with most of the region’s largest markets headquartered in the country.
The country offers many opportunities for British companies due to its substantial domestic market, ease of doing business and enthusiasm for British products. It is well positioned to serve as an entry point for research and expansion into the wider Southeast Asian market.
The week-long challenge is a great way to learn about this dynamic market and the e-commerce opportunities available to UK businesses, as well as meet potential business partners, service providers, and expand to global markets.
ECommerce Expo Asia is a major event for B2B and B2C e-commerce. It is a centre for inspiration, learning and networking, where delegates interact with new and promising ideas, technologies and techniques, as well as practical and easy-to-use solutions to help grow businesses in the region.
The said expo is designed for UK retailers looking to tap into the Asian market and have the ability to create and enrich their digital strategy for Asia, grow internationally, and find global partners.
Established businesses with marketplace experience and expertise and projected annual turnover of over £5 million will likely benefit from the said programme.
The move supports the Digital Economy Agreement between the United Kingdom and Singapore which aims to cut costs, slash red tape, and pave the way for a new era of modern trade between two countries.
