What value can Singapore bring to DutchCham?
For DutchCham, Singapore provides easy access to business opportunities in Singapore and the Asia and South East Asia region (ASEA) and to business knowledge and expertise. Singapore knowledge and expertise: biomedical and healthcare, cleantech, fintech, oil and gas, maritime, smart nations and innovation.
