Singapore Woos Multinationals for 3D Printing

(Business Times) The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) wants multinational companies to pick Singapore as the location for developing 3D printing and additive manufacturing applications for their businesses.

“We’re not ready to announce anything yet, but we’re quite confident of being able to announce some good progress in that space soon,” EDB’s Managing Director Yeoh Keat Chuan said in an interview with Business Times. EDB believes Singapore is one location where commercial applications may take off and disrupt, positively, key sectors such as aerospace and medical technology. “If any country is in a good position, it has to be Singapore,” Mr Yeoh says.
