    GAACC International Market Briefing Will Connect Austin Business Community With Business and Investment Opportunities In Singapore


    Austin, TX (June 29, 2022) The Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce (GAACC), in collaboration with Enterprise Singapore, presents an International Market Briefing and reception: “Business and Investment in Singapore” Monday, July 25, 2022, at the Capital Factory in Downtown Austin.

    Singapore has long been acknowledged as a global business hub and a gateway for international enterprises aiming to establish connections in Southeast Asia. With well-developed infrastructure, political stability, pro-business policies, a skilled workforce, and respect for intellectual property rights, the city-state provides a trusted and reliable environment for international enterprises to do business, innovate, and create new Ventures.

    “Many throughout Central Texas have observed an influx of international attention on our area as a fertile ground for business,” said GAACC president and CEO Fang Fang. “GAACC actively works to build on that trend by partnering with dynamic regional organizations that, collectively, can help to develop the infrastructure in policy, connections, and culture necessary for Austin to truly become an international economic powerhouse. As this is the first time these local groups have joined together in an effort like this, we are especially excited. Making connections between these stakeholders and our Singaporean partners is a strong step toward making Austin global.”

    At the center of this International Market Briefing is a panel of experts in Singaporean business, including representatives from two Singaporean-based companies that have successfully expanded to include operations in Central Texas. The panel discussion will focus on identifying and developing opportunities for business growth between Singapore and Austin.
