Kara has been the British High Commissioner to Singapore since 26 June 2019. Before becoming High Commissioner, Kara was most recently Director for the Americas at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
The British High Commission in Singapore maintains and develops relations between the UK and Singapore. We encourage Singapore to look to the UK as a global partner of choice in trade, investment, science and research, and we help Singapore on low-carbon economic development. Every year, we help about 100 UK companies gain a foothold in Singapore. We also work with Singapore to protect the national security of both countries, including through holding joint military exercises under the Five Power Defence Arrangements.
