Among the industrialzied countries, many new and growing businesses nowadays chose Singapore primarily because of its reputation and stability in terms of economic and facility.  Other needs to reposition their office in a competitive trading nation for added sales and reliability.”  These are credible based on facts and figures.  As per our own study, I was able to get some reasons and statistical reports:
