In 2015, Australia and Singapore established the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP).

Today, the two countries remain committed to strengthening different aspects of cooperation, including trade and investment, defence and security, science and innovation, education and the arts, digital and green economies.  

The long-standing and close bilateral relationship between Australia and Singapore is built on mutual trust, respect and shared strategic outlook. Singapore is Australia’s largest two-way trading partner in Southeast Asia and the fifth largest source of foreign direct investment.

Singaporean investment in Australia has traditionally been more focused on real estate but has become more diversified in recent years. Building on the strong trade and business ties between Australia and Singapore, there are significant opportunities for Singaporean companies to expand into Australia.

How we help

Our Asia team works alongside Singaporean companies, and collaboratively with our Grant Thornton Singapore office, to achieve growth through investment and market expansion into Australia. This support ranges from new entrants at the very beginning of their Australian growth journey to helping existing investors expand their market footprint or diversify their portfolios.

By engaging our team, clients are given access to our full breadth of tax, accounting and advisory expertise in Australia and Grant Thornton’s global and regional network.
