The booming electronics sector in Singapore

More than 2,100 jobs and a value-add of more than 22 billion until 2020. These are the predictions for Singapore’s electronics sector, made by S. Iswaran, Singapore’s Minister of Trade and Industry. The Government official made these positive predictions during his speech held on the launch of JTC nanoSpace, a new ready-built space for companies in the electronics sector.

The Minister highlighted the fact that the electronics manufacturing sector added up to 4.4 percent of Singapore’s GDP in 2016 and it helped employ some 70,000 people. He also believes that Singapore will attract more foreign investments in this field by transforming the current regime for electronics manufacturing.

Apart from launching a new electronics manufacturing facility in Tampines, the Government also aims to attract and retain talented workers in this field through a Skills Framework for Electronics.
