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

With two years to go before
the next general election must be called, the search is still on for good
men to fill leadership positions in the Singapore of the future, Senior
Minister Lee Kuan Yew said last night. Failure to do so before the
coming election in 2002 would mean trouble when the next one came in
2007, he added.
The Environment Ministry (ENV)
has singled out 11 estates, including Chinatown, Holland Close and
Commonwealth as rat-infested areas. Between one and 150 burrows or rat
holes were found at each location. ENV health officer Mr CHANG Ee
Boo said that about 5000 rats had been killed since Nov 1999.
United Artists' cinemas here
will stay open despite the company filing for bankruptcy protection in
the United States. This is because United Artists Singapore Theatres,
which operates the cinemas, is only 10% owned by the United Artists
Theatre chain. The rest of it is held by London media and e-commerce
company Pacific Media.
The number of children
seeking treatment for injuries, caused by skate-scooters, at the KK
Women's and Children's Hospital has doubled over the past three months.
Compared to about six cases a week in June, the hospital is getting 15
cases weekly now, said Dr Angelina Ang, vice-chairman of its Child
Safety Centre's management committee. Most are children aged between six
and 12 years. The most common injuries are cuts, bruises, fractures of
the upper limbs and bumps on the head.
New Delhi: A long-standing
demand for dual citizenship by several million Indians living outside
India may be finally met when the government tables a new Foreigners
Bill later this month. Dual citizenship is one of the issues covered by
the Bill, which is sure to be hotly debated in the Indian parliament.
Hongkong: Eight Inland
Revenue Department (IRD) officers and a former employee were among 32
people arrested for alleged involvement in two separate taxation bribery
scams, the Independent Commission Against Corruption said yesterday. Of
the 32 arrested, 15 are still being detained by the ICAC while 17 have
been released on bail.
Bangkok: Drug abuse is
rampant in Thai schools because of poor classroom management, badly
located toilets and an authoritarian school culture, a researcher has
found. The "golden hour" for drug dealing is between 10am and
11am - just before classes begin, Mrs Jirapan Traithipcharas of the
General Education Department noted. She said the findings showed that a
management style which demanded absolute obedience created a gap between
teachers and children. The findings were presented in one of four
research papers released by the department after a two-year study.
