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.
A high-level working
committee is now looking at ways to encourage more couples to have
babies. Demographer Saw Swee Hock says that if the fertility rate
continues to stay below two, the population here, minus the foreigners,
will peak at about 3.3 million in 2025 and then begin to drop.

Singapore Gazette newspapers
Since March this
year, households in Singapore have been receiving
neighbourhood news through a new tabloid, Singapore
Gazette, which is
distributed FREE to all households within the same
neighbourhood. It started in Jurong, with the Jurong
Gazette. Since then, an average of two new neighbourhood
newspapers a month have gone into circulation. Each of
these editions bears the name of the estate, eg Toa
Payoh Gazette for Toa Payoh Estate.
A total of 17
editions of the Singapore Gazette have rolled out of the
presses by November 2000. They cover the almost the
entire island or about 80% of all homes. The different
editions of the Singapore Gazette reach an estimated
700,000 households. Their aim is to focus on local
residents and give the ordinary folk a voice in the
What is interesting is -
the newspaper is delivered to the doorstep once every
month at no cost to the resident at all. The Singapore
Gazette certainly provides some competition for the
other newspapers in Singapore.
Here are some of the
editions: Jurong Gazette, Choa Chu Kang Gazette,
Clementi Gazette, Bukit Panjang Gazette, Bukit Timah
Gazette, Bishan Gazette, Prime Gazette, Toa Payoh
Gazette, Bedok Gazette, Tampines Gazette, East Gazette,
Bukit Panjang Gazette, Hougang Gazette & Yishun
