The United States is the largest foreign investor in Singapore. U.S. businesses invest in people, communities, the environment, innovative products and services, and shared values such as diversity and inclusion.
That’s why the Embassy has produced the American Corporate Excellence (ACE) video series – to showcase American companies that have outstanding corporate social responsibility initiatives, high standards for quality, reliability, and partnership, produce innovative products and services, and employ and train exceptional individuals.
U.S. Embassy Singapore is proud to be partnering with the U.S.-ASEAN Business Council to produce the ACE series.
