Internationalisation and trade may be big terms, but for International Enterprise (IE) Singapore, an economic agency under the Ministry of Trade and Industry, it is their corporate mission. Two scholars share their experiences for the organisation that fosters the economic growth of Singapore.
By Grace Swee
International Enterprise (IE) Singapore, as its name suggests, is an economic agency that envisions “internationalisation” and “international trade” as the key to advancing Singapore’s economy.
According to the scholarly duo of Derek Sim and Mohd Moinuddin Kortiwala, this term refers to global networks and relationships with foreign investors.
With over 30 overseas centres located worldwide and a diverse range of corporate networks, IE Singapore is the epitome of a trade promotion agency with its widespread global operations.
