Singapore Airlines is one of the World's Most Admired Companies

The Fortune World's Most Admired Companies for 2014, a list of 50 brands, lists Singapore Airlines at no. 18. The brand is the only one from Singapore in the top 50. 

Apple, Google and Amazon made the top three respectively. 

Two other brands from Singapore made the top ten in specific industries: Flextronics (Singapore), ranked 6th for semiconductors, and Wilmar International, ranked 2nd for food production.

Both brands are global players. On February 26,  UBM Tech and Flextronics announced the Silicon Valley Open Innovation Summit 2014, a unique event focused on accelerating product innovation at EE Live! 2014, a US electronics technology conference and expo. The Summit is founded and organised by Flextronics.  

Wilmar announced February 28 that it will supply the US west coast with sustainable palm oil certified to Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) standards. The oil will be supplied from Sime Darby Berhad’s RSPO-certified plants in Malaysia and available to the US market from June 2014.
