Singapore’s infocomm industry has grown leaps and bounds following the launch of the iN2015 Masterplan in 2005.The infocomm sector has become one of its key economic contributors. Data from the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore has since proven that Singapore’s infocommunications (infocomm) industry registered at S$70.3 billion in 2010, representing a 12.2% y-o-y growth.
Additionally, Singapore’s manufacturing output of computer, electronic and optical products grew by 25.8% y-o-y in 2010. Furthermore, four of the world’s top five electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers have manufacturing operations in Singapore.
“It comes to no surprise then that Singapore has consistently ranked well in global and regional rankings for infocomm developments and usage. Its e-government services have earned it top ranking in the IMD 2010 World Competitiveness Yearbook as well as Waseda University’s World e-Government Ranking in 2009 and 2010,” added Mr. Bakhda.
“This week’s events demonstrate how far Singapore has come to become an ICT leader and how on track it is to achieving its national vision. We are optimistic that Singapore will be able to attain this goal and in the near future, we anticipate that Singapore will breed more tech entrepreneurs and entice the best brains in ICT to see Singapore company formation as a top priority,” affirmed Mr. Bakhda.
