Gan Kim Yong: Comprehensive measures implemented by Singapore to curb unauthorized arms sales

Gan Kim Yong, Minister for Trade and Industry, underscored Singapore’s comprehensive approach to regulating strategic goods and technology to curb unauthorized arms sales through the city-state.

Measures involve strict regulations under the Strategic Goods (Control) Act 2002 and coordination with various agencies to comply with international obligations and sanctions.

In July this year, Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan confirmed that 138 Singapore-based entities have been identified as participants in the supply chain to Myanmar’s military.
