Time flies when you’re working hard! Here are some of the goals kicked by Austrade Singapore over the last 6 months.
Austrade Singapore had been involved in a series of activities and initiatives. From a visit by the Minister for Defence Industry to the launch of Taste Australia, a food and agribusiness campaign. Austrade also assisted 37 Australian exporters in the Singapore Airshow; launched the Asia Pacific Maritime 2018; led a Money 20/20 panel discussion with Victoria, New South Wales and Westpac; and briefed 120 education providers at Asia-Pacific Association for International Education 2018 (APAIE) Conference.

The team hosted visits for Australian students from various Australian universities, including from the New Colombo Plan (NCP) program and held an industry seminar in Smart Built Environment in partnership with the Singapore Building & Construction Authority (BCA).
In July, Austrade Singapore hosted an Infrastructure Investment Forum in collaboration with Enterprise Singapore and Infrastructure Asia, and Singapore Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Dr Koh Poh Koon.
