How to sell your product or service in Singapore?

Singapore, a city-state in Southeast Asia, is a global financial hub with a multicultural population of about 5.7 million as of 2023. It is renowned for its economic prowess, strict laws, and efficient urban planning.

With a high GDP per capita of approximately $65,000 USD in 2023, Singapore’s economy is driven by finance, trading, and manufacturing, especially in electronics and biomedical sciences. The port of Singapore is one of the busiest in the world.

Singapore business culture

English is one of the official languages in Singapore, the others being Chinese, Malay, and Tamil. Singapore is a highly organised and structured country. Punctuality, accuracy, and efficiency are of most value in all business dealings.

Business culture is similar to the western business style. Decisions are taken at the top level and then disseminated down the chain of command. Singapore is a performance based society. Deals are sealed mostly based on perceived performance and value that you bring to the table.

Negotiation tactics in Singapore

The following guidelines will help project your business favourably to your Singapore Customers:

  • Establish the reputation of your business as best as you can. This is elemental and vital to your business prospects.
  • Adopt a serious and refined business tone.
  • Singaporeans do not refuse or say no openly, instead watch out for non-verbal communications or indirect hints.
  • Given their vast experience in international trade, Singapore business persons can be approached directly.
  • When someone older or higher up the hierarchy enters the room, it is customary to stand up.
  • Singaporean customers spend a lot of time gathering information resulting in slower decision making.
  • Expect some shrewd bargaining and haggling.
