How business-friendly are Singapore’s government agencies? Very, say the latest scores from the annual Pro-Enterprise Index survey by Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE).

The survey ranked 26 government agencies with a score out of 100 on a number of criteria, such as customer centric focus, openness to new ideas and operating cost efficiency. This year’s average score was 76.83, the highest since the survey began in 2004, but businesses claimed there was still room for improvement in some of these areas.

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) came first with 90.64 and others like the Pro-Enterprise Panel (PEP) were recognized for acting as an intermediary between small business and government agencies on cutting red tape.
