Singapore, France trade leaders adopt digital work plan for SMEs

The programme supports firms’ research and development projects.

Trade ministers of Singapore and France approved the France-Singapore Digital and Green Partnership (DGP) work plan, which will support innovations of firms in both countries.

The adoption of the work plan came after Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations S Iswaran met with French Minister in charge of Foreign Trade, Attractiveness, and French Nationals Abroad Olivier Becht, who recently paid a visit to Singapore.

It includes a co-innovation programme to back joint research and development (R&D) projects by Singapore and French firms, cybersecurity schemes, AI, and heritage conservation.

In March, the DGP was signed to help companies grow, especially small-medium enterprises.

Where to invest your millions in real estate
Amongst locations, realtors suggest the Core Central Region.   Individuals seeking shelter in the real estate market amidst the rising inflation must consider three things before deciding where to invest their millions in.   George Tan, managing director of Savills Digital Residential Marketing, said one of these factors is location.    Tan said buyers should consider areas which are highly demanded and well located—easy access to prestigious or international schools, MRT, malls and food and beverage (F&B) establishments. All these will contribute to good rental demand.   PropNex realtor, Andy Lim, echoed this, adding that buyers should particularly invest in properties within one kilometre of the prestigious schools.
