  2. Innovation and Productivity
    Projects under Innovation and Productivity support companies that explore new areas of growth, or look for ways to enhance efficiency. These could include reviewing and redesigning workflow and processes. Companies could also tap into automation and technologies to make routine tasks more efficient.
  3. Market Access
    Projects under Market Access support Singapore companies that are willing and ready to venture overseas. You may tap into the EDG to help defray some of the costs of expanding into overseas markets.

As of 30 December 2020, Overseas Marketing Presence (OMP) will be supported under the Market Readiness Assistance Grant (MRA). Please refer here for more details.
