“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of Singapore.



Report by Singapore

This is the sixth Trade Policy Review of Singapore by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Singapore’s period under review (2008-2011) was marked by an unprecedented global economic crisis. Amidst an increasingly challenging post-crisis landscape, Singapore is committed to keeping our markets open and promoting fair and active competition. To ensure that growth is both sustainable and inclusive, Singapore will undertake long-term economic reforms to increase productivity and innovation and strengthen our social infrastructure.
