This chapter introduces the concept of private international law in Singapore. Singapore's private international law’s burgeoning phase is largely driven by the government’s desire to position the nation as the centre of choice for the resolution of international commercial disputes, international insolvency, and restructuring efforts. The chapter then provides a brief overview of the commercial aspects and significant developments in Singapore’s private international law rules. It tackles the establishment of the Singapore International Commercial Court, Singapore International Mediation Centre, and Singapore International Arbitration Centre in an effort to offer a complete suite of dispute resolution services for international commercial disputes. Moreover, these developments also affected the field of jurisdiction and foreign judgments.
