[2023/07/25] [Trigger Business Opportunities in Southeast Asia] IPIM and Macao Enterprises Debut in Singapore Food Expo 2023 with Fascinating “Made in Macao” Products

The Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) organized 17 Macao enterprises to attend the “Singapore Food Expo 2023” on 21-24 July. Some of the exhibitors applauded on the event for the number of visitors and their spending power, as they sold more than half of their products on the second day of event. Some of the exhibitors were surprised by the Singapore Livestream Shopping platform, which enabled them to sell dozens of products in just a few seconds. Cheered by the good quality and competitive price of Macao’s products, some of the distributors simply purchased the whole batch of products and planned to develop long-term co-operation with the relevant Macao exhibitors. It reflects that the “Made in Macao” and “Macao brand” products have gained recognition and positive feedback from the local, thus the enterprises will increase their efforts to further expand the ASEAN market.

Organised by the Singapore Food Manufacturers’ Association (SFMA), the Singapore Food Expo has been held since 2000, which is a mega exhibition of local food, providing a platform for food display, sales and commercial exchange. This year’s Expo took place at the Singapore Expo. With the support and assistance of the Industrial Association of Macau (AIM), IPIM organized Macao enterprises to make their debut at the Expo and showcase diverse products such as Macao’s delicacies souvenirs, food products, coffee, beer, tea, instant soup and healthcare products.

Agreement signed by SFMA and AIM to jointly facilitate trade co-operation

SFMA and AIM signed a co-operation agreement on the first day of the Expo (21 July), hoping to jointly facilitate future trade co-operation and exchange business intelligence. The signing of the agreement was witnessed by Minister of State for the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Singapore, Low Yen Ling and IPIM President, Vincent U.

IPIM President, Vincent U expressed the desires to promote the business environment of Macao and Hengqin by participating in this food industry professional exhibition, and introduce the enterprises in Singapore and ASEAN to the new pattern of Macao-Hengqin synergistic collaboration and new opportunities for regional co-operation. IPIM will continue to help investors develop diversified business markets by organising Macao enterprises to participate in the mainland and overseas MICE events.

AIM President, Chui Yuk Lum remarked that various Macao products have a certain competitive edge in Singapore due to their quality, taste and price. It is hoped that Macao enterprises’ active participation in such professional marketing displays will help them “go global” and further promote Macao products to the neighboring countries and regions.

SFMA President, David Tan Lye Hock said that this year’s Expo has invited renowned food manufacturers from Macao to present delicious food to visitors and traders, and also provided a platform for peer companies to promote their products; moreover, the co-operation agreement signed with AIM is expected to further enhance the communication among food practitioners as well as the exchange and cooperation in global development strategies and trade business.
