The Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME) welcomes the merger of International Enterprise Singapore (IE) and SPRING Singapore (SPRING) to form Enterprise Singapore.

Through this merger, SMEs can benefit from a more seamless and integrated one-stop experience in the dual endeavour of capacity development and internationalisation.

ASME also welcomes the Ministry of Trade & Industry’s appointment of Mr Png Cheong Boon, Second Permanent Secretary for Ministry of Trade and Industry, as the Chief Executive-Designate of Enterprise Singapore.

“Mr Png has worked closely with SMEs over the last 2 decades. His distinctive service as the former Chief Executive of SPRING Singapore and subsequently Jurong Town Corporation will go its way to ensure a successful integration of the two important agencies, whilst also preserving the strengths and deep knowledge of each one,” said Mr Kurt Wee, President of ASME.

As a long-time partner of IE and SPRING, ASME looks forward to working together with Enterprise Singapore.
