The Singapore Productivity Association (SGPA) works with local and international partners to share knowledge and insights on productivity, innovation and other business capabilities.

Together with our competency arm, the Singapore Productivity Centre (SGPC), we partner local government agencies to roll out events, workshops and courses for businesses and working professionals in Singapore. We also work closely with local trade associations and chambers to support the needs of local enterprises.

On the international front, SGPC is the National Productivity Organization (NPO) representing Singapore at the Asian Productivity Organization (APO). APO is an intergovernmental organization established in 1961 to increase productivity in the Asia-Pacific region.
