(a)Resignation of independent registered public accounting firm

On September12, 2017, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”) resigned as the independent registered public accounting firm for the Aberdeen Singapore Fund,Inc. (the “Fund”).

The reports of PwC on the Fund’s financial statements as of and for the two most recent fiscal years (ended October31, 2016 and October31, 2015) did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainties, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the Fund’s two most recent fiscal years (ended October31, 2016 and October31, 2015) and the subsequent interim period through September12, 2017, there were no disagreements between the Fund and PwC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of PwC, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in its reports on the financial statements of the Fund for such years.

During the Fund’s two most recent fiscal years (ended October31, 2016 and October31, 2015) and the subsequent interim period through September12, 2017, there were no “reportable events” (as defined in Item304(a)(1)(v)of Regulation S-K under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)).

The Fund has provided PwC with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and has requested that PwC furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made by the Fund set forth above. A copy of PwC’s letter dated September18, 2017 is filed as Exhibit16.1 to this Form8-K.
