Even though the Singapore economy contracted by 5.4% in 2020, the Information &
Communications (ICT) sector grew 2.1% fuelled by the demand for IT solutions, and the
finance & insurance (FI) sector expanded by 5.0%.

in the office market with growing headcounts, as the practice of wealth management
continues to grow within the digital sphere. Ongoing investments to elevate Singapore’s
tech ecosystem include a US$50 million pledge by Dell Technology, that would create
more than 160 jobs.
