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.

Fewer youths were caught
committing crimes in the first half of this year compared to the same
period last year. The number of arrested youths, aged between seven and
19, fell by 26%, from 2162 to 1602, said Minister of State for Home
Affairs and Law, Associate Professor Ho Peng Kee at the Youth Justice
2000 conference yesterday.
Evelyn Tan, 25, became the
7th MediaCorp artiste, and the first from the drama unit, to cross over
to join MediaWorks. She resigned on 12 Sep 2000.
The Manpower Ministry's
labour market report for the second quarter of this year, released
yesterday, found that although employment has gone up, more older
workers are being left on the shelf in the job market. The percentage of
those aged 40 and above among the ranks of the unemployed rose from
31.5% in June 1997 to 43.8% in June this year. In contrast, the
proportion of unemployed people under the age of 30 dropped sharply over
the same period - from 45% of the total to 29.3%. In March this year,
more than 6 in 10 of older workers were hired within three to six months
after they were retrenched, but this dropped to 56.6% in June. The
report noted a shortage of infocom professionals, engineers, process
technicians, nurses and other highly-skilled employees. The national
unemployment rate rose from 3.4% to 3.5% in June due to a mismatch in
the demand and supply of labour.
Two childcare centres
yesterday reported a total of 24 cases of hand, foot and mouth disease.
The reports came in the wake of the death of two-year-old LAM Rui Qi who
may have contracted the disease at Cutie Kidz Playhouse, a childcare
centre in Sengkang. Eight other children from Cutie Kidz, and five of
their siblings and cousins, have also been diagnosed with the

Sydney: 27 people were taken
to hospital after being overcome by chemical fumes at Sydney airport on
Wednesday, officials said. Ambulances and police rushed to the airport
when passengers and staff were affected by the fumes in the departure
area. There were no delays to flights.
Beijing: China yesterday
began trials simultaneously in five cities in Fujian province, amid
tight security in the country's biggest smuggling and corruption
scandal. The trials are being held in Xiamen, Fuzhou, Quanzhou, Putian
and Zhangzhou, all coastal cities. The scandal involves more than 200
officials from areas under different jurisdictions.
Seoul: A historic visit to
South Korea by the north's Kim Jong Il is being arranged for next year
