“Supporting Korean firms to locate in and understand the market opportunities here in Singapore and across Southeast Asia demonstrates our capabilities in working with high potential founders, firms and innovations around funding and commercialisation.”

“Singapore, as a gateway to the region, has the optimal conditions for Korean companies to bring their launch pads and further expand their business to the global market. As the bio-healthcare field can contribute to creating a new growth engine for both countries, taking this opportunity, I hope Korea and Singapore can strengthen our cooperation,” said Lee Sangdeok, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Singapore, in an official press statement.
