Estimated population of Singapore citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.

Chinese                     77%

Malays                      14%

Indians                     7.6%

Other ethnic groups 1.4%

Working Language: English

Other official languages: Mandarin, Malay & Tamil.

Planners expect the population of Singapore to reach 5.5 million by 2040 or 2050, taking into account an expected increase in the number of foreigners working here. From just 3 million in 1990, the number has swelled to 3.9 million today, including 700 000 foreigners.

Singapore's water is clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

       1QuestNet.com for online company searches

  1QuestNet.com is a tie-up between Registry of Companies and Businesses (RCB) and DP Information Network (DP Info). It provides online searches, for a fee, on companies and businesses in Singapore. A RCB instant extract costs S$3.20 while an enhanced corporate search will set you back by S$20.

  Of course, if all you want to know is whether such a business or company operates in Singapore, you just need to access RCB own database at NameSearch for free. This is useful for those seeking to register a new business name and want to know whether that name has already been taken up. 

  The website also lets you do a search on individuals to find out that person's interests in companies, and litigation cases.

  The launch of this website is timely, for, if you have been reading the Forum page of The Straits Times lately, you would have known that some readers have written in to say the RCB had not kept up with the times because it had not provided separate classifications for the registration of Internet companies.

  Click 1QuestNet.com to pay them a visit.
