About the Market

Tourism is an important component of their economy, as well as a significant source of foreign exchange revenues, contributing to 9.3% of country's GDP. Good travel and tourism policies enable 10 million international visitors annually. Indonesia's tourism sector accounts for approximately 4% of the total economy and plans to double the figure by 2019 by improving infrastructure, accessibility, health & hygiene, as well as enhancing online promotional marketing strategy, leading to opportunities in upcoming markets. The government has also revised its visa-free access policy in 2015 to attract more foreign tourists. Famous tourist destinations like Bali and Jakarta have already seen a large influx of investment in recent years, especially, in the upper end of the market, leading to excessive supply, promoting the establishment of hotel industry.

About the Geography                  

Singapore is a small, but wealthy nation with an open and trade-driven economy.  It is ranked number one by the World Bank to start and run a business.

Singapore continued to develop since 2010 due to its exports. However, growth in 2014-15 was slower owing to sluggish global economy and Singapore’s weak manufacturing sector. The government is attempting to restructure the economy by reducing dependence on foreign labor and increasing productivity in certain sectors. To boost FDI, the country offers tax concessions, easier loan, and foreign firm’s majority stake in a local company. The liberal laws of the country also make it possible for foreign nations to buy real estate. The government gives preference to investments in manufacturing and services activities as a part of a strategy to replace labor-intensive activities that have migrated offshore to countries like China.

The main challenges of doing business in Singapore are high excise taxes on some products, monopolies in certain sectors, and being an expensive place to do business in. However, it is the leading global business hub, which tells us about the strengths of Singapore’s market. It has Asia’s strongest Intellectual Property (IP) Protection along with low corruption and strong rule of law making it the most popular choice for investors in Asia.
