Background of the Germany-Singapore Business Forum (GSBF)

The Germany-Singapore Business Forum (GSBF) is a biennial event that promotes business and capabilities partnerships between German and Singaporean companies. Since its inception in 1994, the GSBF has been instrumental in strengthening bilateral business relations and has been recognised as a key platform for companies to exchange ideas, network and identify collaboration opportunities.

About GSBF 2018

This year, GSBF is held in conjunction with Hannover Messe 2018, the world’s leading industrial technology and integrated energy show. We are honoured to have Singapore's Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr S. Iswaran, grace the GSBF this year. The forum's two panel sessions will feature industry veterans sharing insights into the latest opportunities to explore Germany-Singapore collaboration and capture regional market opportunities for sustainable growth.

The GSBF this year includes a startup networking session - "Springboard to Asia". Co-organised with German Accelerator Southeast Asia, the session will acquaint entrepreneurs about the Singapore startup ecosystem and scaling opportunities in Southeast Asia.

The GSBF business matching session will also provide participants with a platform to explore collaboration with like-minded counterparts.

Supported by:


Germany's economy grew at a solid 2.2% in 2017 - its fastest pace in 6 years - amidst the challenges that plagued the European Union (EU). According to estimates by the Bundesbank's economists, the EU's largest economy is projected to deliver 2.5% growth in 2018, fuelled by strong business sentiments. With a longstanding focus on sectors like advanced manufacturing and cleantech, Germany continues to be a world leader in tech innovation, attracting worldwide businesses seeking deep-tech expertise.

Amid rapid urbanisation and industrial enhancements in Southeast Asia, the need for inventive solutions is set to hasten. Singapore holds the chairmanship of ASEAN in 2018 and endeavours to usher the bloc's economy to greater heights. This leadership change presents new collaborative opportunities for German and Singaporean businesses to explore and capture synergies in their journey of technological deepening for the ASEAN markets.
