Women in Business in Singapore

In comparison with many other Asian countries, women have made tremendous advances in the business arena over the past decade and female executives now hold many senior positions.

Women in business are expected to keep a very professional, almost distant relationship with male colleagues and this should be respected. Eye contact should be minimal and proper distances observed.

Foreign executives going to work in Singapore will be given the respect due to their rank and professional standing.
