Singapore has launched a new National Quantum Strategy (NQS) to strengthen its position as a leading hub in the development and deployment of quantum technologies. The NQS will see close to $300 million invested over five years.

Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the National Research Foundation (NRF) Mr Heng Swee Keat announced the NQS in his Opening Address at Asia Tech x Summit (ATxSummit) on 30 May 2024. ATxSummit is part of ATxSG, which is the region’s flagship tech event.

The strategy is funded by NRF under Singapore’s Research, Innovation and Enterprise 2025 (RIE 2025) plan.

Under the NQS, NQCH will strengthen its expertise in the use of quantum computing to support use cases in finance, drug discovery and development, and logistics.
