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.

As early as the first quarter of next year, it may take no longer than 24 hours to clear a cheque. This is because of a new system, to be installed, called cheque truncation or the electronic imaging of cheques for sorting and payment. With this system, there is no need for cheques to be physically transported between banks and the clearing house. Instead, cheques are scanned at the presenting bank and images are sent electronically to the clearing house and paying banks for their processing.
