  • The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) is supporting the establishment, providing Volvo Cars with an opportunity to tap into local talent and networks.
  • Yvonne Tan, a senior leader with a strong track record in engineering and technology, will spearhead the hub.

Bottom Line

The Singapore Tech Hub will serve as a global innovation center, further accelerating Volvo’s capabilities in areas like advanced manufacturing and data analytics. This move also strengthens Volvo Cars’ presence in Singapore, where it recently set up its regional headquarters for the APeC region, and reinforces its commitment to becoming a leader in electric vehicle technology and manufacturing.
