What is AmCham Singapore? AmCham is an independent, non-partisan business organization. We are a forward-thinking, business-progressive association. Our mission is to create value for our members by providing advocacy, business insights, and connections. Our membership includes American companies and Singaporean and third-country companies with significant U.S. business interests. We are not affiliated with or funded by the U.S. government. We are a member of the 30-chamber-strong Asia Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce (APCAC).
Our goal is to provide the information and facilitate the access and connections that give you insight into the local, regional, and global operating environment, enhance your professional capabilities, and allow you to make well informed business decisions.

 

Communications: We will email you news of upcoming events in our bi-weekly The Networker, in dedicated messages for special events, and in committee updates.  In addition, our website provides information on advocacy and other special programs.

 

Meetings, roundtables, and workshops: Our events present high-level speakers through the Balestier series with distinguished Singaporeans and the Asia Leader, Global Leader, and Women in Leadership series. We program roundtables and workshops with government of Singapore senior officials. We offer regular meetings with the U.S. Ambassador and members of his senior staff as well as events with visiting U.S. government representatives. We organize business missions to neighboring countries where participants meet with senior government and U.S. Embassy officials and local business leaders.

 

Advocacy in Singapore: We conduct surveys and hold roundtables to ascertain what issues are at the top of our members’ agenda. We present our members’ perspectives and explore solutions in our policy papers, publications, and meetings with the government of Singapore.

 

Advocacy in Washington, D.C.: As members of the Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce (APCAC), we participate in the annual Washington Doorknock.  In our meetings with the Administration and on the Hill, we are pressing for approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and for replacement of the U.S. global taxation regime with a territorial system.

 

Corporate statecraft: Communicating our members’ values to the Singapore public by giving back to the community is a priority. Thousands of members participate in our annual Corporate Community Day that we hold every October in cooperation with the U.S. Ambassador; numerous companies have joined our corporate and societal excellence recognition program that we  inaugurated in 2016.

 

Networking: Just as the spirit of enterprise and innovation hallmarks our community, so does a sense of fun. In addition to the networks that build naturally through AmCham committee, event, CSR, and other interactions, we also find time to enjoy each other’s company.

 

Member visibility: Our speaking, branding, sponsorship, and advertising opportunities raise the profile of members and their companies among our 5,500 members who represent 750 organizations.
