The Government of Singapore is committed to expanding the role of additive manufacturing solutions across Asia and, in 2013, announced it would invest $500 million over five years to boost the country's skills in this area—including in the rapidly emerging 3D printing industry. The funding is part of the government's Future of Manufacturing (FoM) program, with the goal of enticing Singapore's manufacturing enterprises to embrace disruptive technologies such as 3D printing. The $500 million will be used to upgrade skills among workers and engineers, as well as "exploring the potential of building a new 3D printing industry ecosystem."
