Population

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.
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.

  Advanced GDP Estimates

  Advance estimates show that gross domestic product (GDP) in first quarter 2001 grew by 4.6 % in real terms over the same period last year.

  Goods-producing industries are estimated to have grown by 2.5 %. The manufacturing sector registered a significant slowdown on account of the sharp downturn in global electronics. Although still weak, the construction sector continued to head towards a recovery.

  Services-producing industries are estimated to have grown by 5.2 %. All sectors registered lower growth in line with weaker economic conditions.

  The advance GDP estimates for first quarter 2001 were computed largely from the first two months’ data (i.e. Jan and Feb 2001). They are intended as an early indication of the GDP growth in the quarter, and are subject to revision when more comprehensive data become available.

  The preliminary GDP estimates for the quarter, including sectoral performances, sources of growth, inflation, employment and productivity, will be released in mid-May 2001 in the Economic Survey of Singapore.

  Outlook for 2001

  MTI has reviewed its assessment of Singapore’s economic outlook, taking into account the changes in economic conditions, as well as the first quarter advance GDP estimates.  More .....
