The pro-business outlook has brought many international organizations to Singapore. In the latest, Zoom Video Communications, Inc. has announced that it will be expanding its presence in the Southeast Asian country.

Announcing the expansion, Zoom said that it would be opening a new Research and Development Center in Singapore where it will hire hundreds of engineers. It has already begun recruiting engineers in the area. The company has also said that it will be expanding its co-located data center in the country.

“Zoom has changed the realm of what we thought was possible. We can work from anywhere rather than a fixed location. We can brainstorm, learn or even have dinner and drinks together remotely,” said Kai Fong Chng, Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board. “In some ways, we are more productive and fulfilled. And this is only the beginning in re-inventing how we work, live and play. So I am thrilled that Zoom will be partnering with Singapore to set up an R&D center to explore possibilities.”

Zoom entered Singapore two years ago. This expansion within the country will supplement its existing R&D centers in the US, India, and China and support Zoom’s engineering leadership, which is based at its San Jose, California headquarters.
