On April 22, 2019 Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) revealed that EDB does not expect Dyson to be the only player who decides to open EV manufacturing plant in Singapore, as the country still needs to record more EV plants from new players as well.
At present, EDB has been negotiating with 2-3 new companies who expressed their interest in investing on EV plants in Singapore. EDB believes that the more local investments by EV makers, the bigger automotive industry of Singapore.
The country’s support of high-technology robots and autonomous system uses will also help solving the high cost of labor issue as well.
