Once upon a time, Singapore and the United Kingdom decided to create a new plan for working together.

A Big Step for Two Friends

Minister S Iswaran from Singapore and UK Secretary Kemi Badenoch met online, and they both agreed that this new plan was a great idea.

Mr Iswaran said, “Singapore and the UK are investor-friendly jurisdictions with large and growing investments in each other’s markets.”

He also mentioned that this new treaty would help make investing safer and more exciting for people in both countries.

Out with the Old, In with the New

The new UK-Singapore Bilateral Investment Treaty (UKSBIT) will replace an old agreement from 1975.

The new rules will ensure that investors from both countries are treated fairly and respectfully.

This updated treaty will also look into making investing even easier and more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Growing Together for a Brighter Future

The friendship between the UK and Singapore is getting stronger every day.

The UK is Singapore’s biggest investor from Europe, with about S$130 billion invested in Singapore.

On the other hand, Singapore is the UK’s third largest investor from Asia, with nearly S$65 billion invested in the UK.

Actionable and Practical Takeaways

• Keep an eye on the progress of the UKSBIT
