Engineering has led to the development of the transportation industry which became the most technologically advanced sector in Singapore. Foreign investors interested in starting a business in the transportation sector can now choose between land, maritime or aviation, all three segments being equally developed, as Singapore is a regional cargo transport hub. Moreover, the city-state is an international aviation hub having the most awarded airport in the world.

When it comes to aviation, local and foreign entrepreneurs can set up various types of businesses, as the government supports this industry through various incentives and assistance programs.
