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

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong spoke at the Teck Ghee
Constituency National Day Dinner on 5 Aug 2000. Here is the full
text of his speech in English.
This year, we
celebrate National Day in a confident mood. Our economy is doing
well. More jobs are being created. We restored part of the cut
in CPF contributions in April, and should be able to take a
further step to restore
more next January. But while the economy as a whole is
prospering, we still face challenges.
One cause for worry is developments in Indonesia.
Indonesia faces many difficult political and economic problems.
There are serious problems in the provinces. In the Malukus,
Christians are fighting Muslims. In West Papua, the indigenous
people are agitating for independence. The TNI have been
demoralised and discredited. The media have become very
assertive, highlighting KKN
practices in the government. No foreign investments are flowing

Around the world
London: Vegetarian mothers
are more likely to give birth to girls, according to research that backs
the old wives' tale that what a woman eats can affect the sex of her
child. The study is believed to be the first to show that cutting out
meat and fish can affect the sex of a baby significantly. The Times
newspaper reported yesterday. Ms Pauline Hudson, a pregnancy expert at
the University of Nottingham, analysed the impact of the growing number
of vegetarian women on the health of newborns. She and co-researcher
Rosemary Buckley found that, while the national average in Britain was
106 boys born to every 100 girls, for vegetarian mothers, the ratio was
just 85 boys to 100 girls. The survey was based on an audit of about
6,000 pregnant women in 1998, said The Times.
