Bilateral and Multilateral Relations

IMDA also participates actively in international organisations to shape international policies on ICM and postal services to ensure that Singapore’s interests are safeguarded. Some of the international organisations that IMDA participates include the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Asia-Pacific Telecommunity (APT), International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Universal Postal Union (UPU).
IMDA’s China Office was set up in 2002 to support bilateral ICM collaborations between China and Singapore as well as to provide in-sights to Singapore infocomm media companies which plan to expand into the China market. IMDA also participates in government-to-government initiatives such as the China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park, Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City and the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstrative Initiative on Strategic Connectivity.
