Abstract: This study attempts to investigate Japanese investment in Singapore's manufacturing industry. However, before going into the details of the topic, a brief overview on Japanese foreign investment in the regions such as North America, Latin America, Asia, Middle East, Europe, Africa and Oceania will be discussed. Then, the "push factors" that result in Japan's expanding amount of foreign investment will be identified. Then, Japanese investment in ASEAN will be analysed. After the analysis, the study will be narrowed down to the main topic, that is, Japanese investment in Singapore's manufacturing industry. The importance of foreign manufacturing investments in Singapore is stressed before the trend and the compositions of Japanese manufacturing investment are investigated. After an analysis of the Japanese investment in the manufacturing sector, the investment incentives given by the Singapore government and the Japanese investors' decision to invest in the manufacturing sector will be discussed. Some general characteristics of Japanese investment in Singapore's manufacturing industry will be deduced. The reasons why Japanese investment in the manufacturing sector has been decreasing recently will also be examined. Thereafter, the economic and non-economic impacts of Japanese investment on Singapore's economy will be dealt with. In the process of writing this study, interviews were conducted with the officials of a few organisations and institutions regarding the factors that attract Japanese investors to invest here and the impact of Japanese investment on Singapore's economy. The study ends with a concluding remark.
