It represents more than 15,000 companies as well as the local and foreign business chambers and key national and industry associations from business sectors that contribute significantly to the Singapore economy.
Nationally, SBF acts as the bridge between the government and businesses in Singapore to create and enhance a pro- business environment.
Internationally, SBF represents the business community in bilateral, regional, and multilateral fora for the purpose of promoting trade expansion and business networking.
The SBF was formed on 1 April 2002 via the SBF Act which was passed by Parliament requiring all Singapore-registered companies with a paid-up capital of S$0.5 million and above to become members of the SBF.
Its formation was to foster a more comprehensive organisation and representation of the Singapore business community's interests at home and abroad.

strengthens Singapore's tripartite structure of business working in concert with government and employees' unions
facilitates better co-ordination between public agencies and the business community
