Our objective as an association is to help provide our members with opportunities, insights and services to boost their publishing business. 


The SBPA represents the voice of the publishing industry in Singapore and and builds strong relationships with Government, media and other stakeholders. As the representative of the industry, SBPA can influence decisions impacting publishers and the industry.


Through our network, we keep track of changes in the political, regulatory and business environment that can impact the industry and will keep our members informed as best as possible to enable publishers to adapt to changes.  


The Association serves to provide support for publishers to get various government funding for content creation and to support marketing of titles published in Singapore to global markets. Currently, The SBPA manages the Singapore Pavilions at the Frankfurt, London and Beijing Book Fair.

We encourage local authors and promote a healthy reading movement of local literature through the BuySingLit programme in Singapore. We also take necessary measures to strengthen copyright laws in Singapore.
