BDA targets Asian market in Singapore meetings
Fresh off an overseas business development mission in Toronto, the Bermuda Business Development Agency is back on the road to Egypt this autumn, but first to Singapore in the days ahead to meet with strategic partners in the Asia and Pacific region.
David Hart, BDA CEO joins a series of business development meetings focusing on climate risk finance, technology, asset management, high net-worth services and infrastructure.
He commented: “This is an incredibly opportune time to visit Singapore, whose importance as a global financial services hub was recently ranked third highest in a Global Financial Centres Index, overtaking Hong Kong as highest in Asia.
“This business development mission to Singapore has been the centrepiece of our Asia strategy for 2022 and we are excited to finally be heading back in person for the first time since 2019.”
Seventeen meetings are already scheduled with senior representatives from several quality service providers including law firms, as well as high-net-worth services, fintech and asset management providers.
The BDA promotes the benefits of investing in Bermuda, doing business with Bermuda as well as Bermuda’s ongoing Economic Investment Certificate initiative.
The BDA is also invited to family office conference and will round off the visit by speaking with members and leadership of the Singapore Business Federation.
“We thank all our Bermuda partners and stakeholders who opened doors to significant, value added meetings during our time in Singapore,” Mr Hart said.
The BDA promotes and protects, in collaboration with government and the private sector, sustainable and equitable economic growth, diversity and prosperity in Bermuda.
The agency is a conduit between industry and government, as well as market entrants and Bermuda’s service providers.
