Economic ties between Singapore and Sichuan saw robust growth amid global volatilities, with bilateral trade growing by 38.9% year-on-year, reaching an all-time high of US$2.7 billion in 2022. Last year, Singapore was also Sichuan’s largest foreign investor, with cumulative actual investments of about US$4.2 billion across 737 projects.
