Singapore agency attracts S$12b fixed asset investment in 2013
(01-28 17:13)

Singapore's Economic Development Board attracted S$12.1 billion in fixed asset investment in 2013, the investment promotion agency said on Tuesday.
This is in line with the official forecast of S$11 billion to S$13 billion, but it is 24 percent less than the amount of fixed asset investment attracted by the agency in 2012.
The fixed asset investment that the Economic Development Board helped attract to Singapore represents most of the fixed asset investments made by foreign investors.
The total business expenditure per annum was S$7.8 billion in 2013, up 26 percent year on year.
A total of 21,400 skilled jobs were created, up from 18,600 in 2012.
