Singapore Business Federation National Business Survey 2019/2020

The Singapore Business Federation (SBF) is conducting their SBF National Business Survey 2019/2020 to understand the needs, challenges and forward-looking plans of the Singapore business community. SBF has commissioned Blackbox Research Pte Ltd to administer the survey. SBF is seeking SCAL members’ help to provide feedback by completing the survey.

What the survey is about

The survey seeks to give greater insights on the state of our Singapore business community. The findings of the survey have been used in the past to make recommendations to the government on its national budget, policies and programmes, as well as to work with various stakeholders, including the Singapore business community itself, to develop programmes for the benefit of the wider community.

The survey covers topics such as the local and regional business environment, support for companies, and business innovation. Your response to the survey is a good opportunity to lend your voice via the business chambers.

The survey will take only about 20 minutes to complete. All completed surveys will be treated with the strictest confidence and only aggregated information will be released in any published form.

What survey respondents can get

  1. SBF is offering every participant who completes the survey with a summary report of the survey findings through email ahead of everyone else.
  2. SBF is also offering the first 300 participants who complete the survey with:
  • An exclusive briefing and dialogue chaired by their CEO, Mr Ho Meng Kit, on the survey findings.
  • A priority complimentary pass to attend their flagship Future Economy Conference and Exhibition (FECE) 2019 that will be held on 16 October 2019 at the Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre, in conjunction with the FUTR Asia Summit 2019 and IMDA’s SG:D Industry Day 2019. At this conference, you will get to hear notable speakers speak about “People, Digitalisation & The Future of Jobs”. The passes are given out on a first-come-first-serve basis. The invitation link will be sent to you after you have completed the survey.
