Growth projections for emerging Asia (India, South East Asia and China) remain robust. Singapore will continue to be an attractive platform for investing in the region, even in the midst of unprecedented global tax changes including US tax reforms and multilateral efforts to curb aggressive tax structures.
In the run up to the 2018 Singapore Budget, there are calls for introducing more incentives to strengthen Singapore’s competitiveness as a preferred fund and tech hub. While India’s 2018 Budget may not provide special incentives for investors, a number of recent developments are likely to impact India-focused structures. Other recent developments include Singapore’s position as a hub for debt restructuring as well as innovations in fintech and crypto currencies, which has given rise to new regulatory and tax issues.
