The Logo

The parallelogram with its four triangles depicts Singapore’s economic sectors, with the red triangle representing the dynamic Trade & Industry.

Of the two winding curves, the wider one in a lighter shade of red symbolizes our progressive Singapore economy. Tied to its economic fluctuations is the thinner curve in dark red representing Trade & Industry. Both meandering curves align and move upwards together as one, tapering to more deliberate and focused heights of excellence in their journey of progress.

The Trade Industry Association has also been translated into three other languages - Mandarin, Malay and Tamil. These are the four official languages in Singapore. English is the language of business, and Malay the national language.
