Singapore Globalisation Journey
International Enterprise (IE) Singapore started as the Trade Development Board (TDB) in 1983 to promote Singapore’s exports and evolved into growing Singapore’s trade and developing Singapore as a trade hub. It is the government agency driving Singapore’s external economy, transforming Singapore into a thriving global trading hub, with a complete ecosystem for the energy, agri-commodities and metals & minerals trading clusters.
For the past 30 years, IE Singapore have been spearheading the overseas growth of Singapore-based companies and promoting international trade. Today, Singapore has broken into the top 15 of trading nations, capturing more than 2% of the world’s total exports.
International Enterprise (IE) Singapore will celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2013. In celebration of this significant milestone, a set of 4 stamps depicting the globalisation of Singapore is released on 10 September 2013.
