Singapore Business Review Awards 2018 honours 22 outstanding firms

Over 160 guests graced the awards dinner held at the Conrad Centennial, Singapore on 17 May.

Singaporean companies are challenged to stand out as they move in a market full of competition and uncertainties at home and abroad. In an effort to recognise the companies that delivered turnarounds through various innovation, Singapore Business Review held this year’s International Business Awards, National Business Awards, and Listed Companies Awards.

The winning companies were honoured at a joint awards ceremony held on 17 May 2018 at the Conrad Centennial Singapore. 

Now in its fifth year, the International Business Awards lauds the most outstanding international firms operating in Singapore. The fourth Listed Companies Awards recognises innovative publicly listed companies in the city-state. Meanwhile, homegrown Singaporean companies were honoured in the third National Business Awards.

"There are a lot of new companies which means there a lot of new innovations," said Singapore Business Review editor-in-chief Tim Charlton.

This year's nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Ng Jiak See, executive director and head of corporate finance advisory at Deloitte Singapore & Southeast Asia; Choo Eng Chuan, ASEAN markets leader and partner, international and corporate tax services at Ernst & Young Solutions LLP; Toh Kim Teck, assurance partner at Foo Kon Tan LLP; and Henry Tan, managing director at NEXIA TS.

The event was also graced by prestigious guests including Ukraine Ambassador to Singapore Dymtro Senik, Royal Danish Embassy head of trade Ole Boisselier-Malgrem, New Zealand Chamber of Commerce board member Mark Thomas, and Belgium Luxembourg Business Group honorary secretary Tom De Geytere.
