Functions of HKETO

Set up in 1995, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Singapore strives to strengthen the bilateral relations including closer economic, cultural and people-to-people ties between Hong Kong and three ASEAN countries, namely Laos, Singapore and Vietnam, and India. We also promote foreign direct investments into Hong Kong; attract enterprises to set up or expand their businesses in Hong Kong; and promote talent attraction schemes to bring in talents to work in Hong Kong. The Shipping Registry promotes ship registration and serves the owners of Hong Kong registered ships, residing in Singapore and neighbouring Southeast Asia cities.

Our office has been working with stakeholders, such as local governments, business chambers and associations, think tanks, media, and local Hong Kong community, to keep them abreast of the latest developments in Hong Kong. We also organise cultural performances and promotional events, such as music concerts, theatre performances, film festivals and exhibitions, to showcase the city’s soft power and deepen its cultural ties with the region.
