Government Assistance Schemes
Government assistance schemes have been created to assist and encourage businesses and industries in the production, export, manufacturing and tourism industries. The main purpose of these schemes is to alleviate duty on certain materials otherwise applicable upon importation. This enables most of the burden of material import costs to be removed, resulting in cheaper and more competitive production costs. This, in essence, helps you with your investment.
The Division administers 3 such assistance schemes. Potential investors, and existing businesses or industries, wishing to apply for assistance through these schemes should contact the Industry Development & Investment Promotion Division.
