Why Export to Singapore and Indonesia?
 Singapore is one of the most sophisticated industrial, commercial, financial, and consumer economies in the world.
 The World Bank Report “Doing Business 2012” cited Singapore as the world’s easiest place to do business.
 Singapore is a gateway to Southeast Asia. North American manufacturers can find buyers that sell to other Southeast Asian countries.
 Indonesia is Southeast Asia’s largest economy with 240 million people, 50% of whom are under the age of 30.
 More than 60 million low-income Indonesian workers are projected to join the middle class in the coming decade, significantly increasing the already strong consumer demand.
 In 2012, Indonesia’s GDP grew to nearly $900 billion with a growth of over 6%.
