Singapore government committed S$19billion plan to support Singapore’s R&D over the next five years, an 18% increase from the 2015 budget. The country’s investment is to assure that its Research Innovation Enterprise 2020 Plan, designed to support and translate research into solutions that address the country’s national challenges, increase innovation and technology adoption by companies, and drive the nation’s economic growth through value creation.
