Facing a slowdown in its electronics manufacturing sector, Singapore has decided to invest heavily into the 3D printing sector to convert the city state in a hub for this new technology seen as the future of digital printing.

The government of Singapore has stated that, over the course of the next five years, it will invest $500 million into the country’s advanced manufacturing technologies to maintain its competitiveness with its Southeast Asian neighbours.

Part of this  investment will be funneled to the development of training programmes to help engineers and workers define and use next generation manufacturing technologies in order to build up “a new 3D printing industry ecosystem” and cement Singapore’s role to be a high-tech hub in the Asia-Pacific region.

Singapore’s Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugartnam explained that as the country looks to restructure its economy, it is always keeping its ears pricked for emerging growth opportunities.

“We have to keep developing new capabilities so that we stay relevant in the world and create higher-value industries and high-quality jobs for Singaporeans,” he said.
