About Singapore and the Embassy of Denmark
Singapore is Southeast Asia’s undisputed business center and together with Denmark, the country is in the top ten on the list of the best countries to do business in. The island state, known for its strong economy, low corruption rates, and high standard of living, is used by many companies as a testbed for its products in the region. At the same time, Singapore is known as Asia’s greenest metropolis, and sustainability is high on the agenda, as in Denmark.
The green agenda is an important topic in the embassy’s work when we look after Denmark’s interests in Singapore, and when we assist Danish companies in establishing themselves in the market. We handle tasks within economic diplomacy, public diplomacy, EU cooperation, political reporting, delegation visits, and consular and administrative tasks.
