- Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Singapore.
The Embassy of the Republic of Korea focuses primarily on promoting Korea-Singapore relationship, increasing the stature of Korea in Singapore and assisting Korean community and business society’s growth and development.
Slightly bigger than the size of Seoul, Singapore is a city state located at the tip of Malay Peninsula. Singapore plays a leading role in economic growth and industrial development across the region and thus earning its position as one of the Four Dragons of Asia. It is also a leading nation in Fourth Industrial Revolution, Smart Cities and technological innovation in the late years. As such, Singapore is defined as a small but strong nation.
Since the establishment of our diplomatic relationship in 1975, Korea and Singapore have maintained close ties between the two governments and people-to-people exchanges are vibrant.
Our two countries are important partners to each other. In particular, Singapore was the ninth trading destination to Korea in 2017. Many Korean engineering and construction companies in Singapore are renowned for their successful completion of the landmarks as well as execution of major infrastructure projects in the country. People-to-people exchanges between the two countries have been continuously on the rise with more than 800,000 visitors in 2017.The demand for cooperation between Korea and Singapore is expected to increase given Singapore’s location as hub in ASEAN and the Korean government’s initiative, “New Southern Policy”, which aims to upgrade its relationship with ASEAN.
I, along with all staff of the Embassy, will continue to make utmost effort in providing the best assistance for Koreans and Korean business entities in Singapore. As a part of such endeavour, we look forward to any feedback and suggestions that you may have regarding the Embassy’s website. Your opinion would be of a big help not only for the maintenance of the website but also for the Embassy’s activities.
