Introduction:
Singapore is a critical security partner to the US in Southeast Asia. The US and Singapore share longstanding military relations, with American forces making use of Singapore’s Naval Base facilities,
contributing to peace and stabilizing efforts throughout the region, offering humanitarian assistance,
and acting as a deterrent to potential security threats.1 US-Singaporean security cooperation also
extends to bilateral exercises, joint military training activities, and cargo screening efforts. The
importance of Singapore to biosecurity in Southeast Asia continues to grow, due to its rapid
biotechnology growth, its leadership in biosafety training within the region, its experience in containing
the pandemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), as well as ongoing preparedness efforts
related to new, emerging diseases.
