Singapore is known to have a highly developed economy, and also ranks highly in education, life expectancy, and quality of life. The economy in Singapore is considered one of the most free, competitive, and business-friendly in the world, which makes it a fantastic base for business operations in the region. This economy is largely based around banking and finance, and to a lesser extent, the oil industry. Singapore has excellent trading connections with the United States, EU, and Malaysia, among many other countries, making the city-state a great hub for the export of goods such as food, textiles, and petroleum.
