For the first time, Singapore's story of trade and internationalization is featured on stamps. Trade has always been the backbone of Singapore's economy, and through the years, International Enterprise (IE) Singapore has been spearheading the overseas growth of Singapore-based companies and international trade. In conjunction with the 30thanniversary of IE Singapore, SingPost released the Globalisation of Singapore stamp issue on 10 September 2013.
This set of four stamps commemorates the efforts of IE Singapore in transforming Singapore into a thriving global trading hub, with a complete ecosystem for the energy, agri-commodities, and metals and minerals trading clusters. It comes in 1st Local, S$0.65, S$0.80 and S$1.10 denominations, encapsulating the aspirations of IE Singapore to establish Singapore as a thriving business hub with globally competitive companies and leading international traders.
