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.

Former General Post Office (GPO) building reopens as
The Fullerton Hotel
Fullerton Building in Fullerton Square reopened yesterday
as the luxury Fullerton Hotel after a S$400 million
makeover which started in 1997 when Hongkong-listed Sino
Land bought the place for S$110 million. Fullerton
Building was previously the General Post Office (GPO).
Fullerton takes its
name from Robert Fullerton who was the Governor of
Singapore from 1826 to 1829. The building was completed in
1928 by the architects Keys & Dowdeswell who left
their pseudo-classical mark on their buildings. Keys &
Dowdeswell left Singapore in the 1930s after they were
struck off the register for professional misconduct.
The new Fullerton
Hotel has a champagne colour scheme throughout . There
are 400 rooms available at prices ranging from S$450 to
S$3,800. Its facilities include a bistro, a Chinese
restaurant and a bar. A 36-seater restaurant will open
An underground tunnel
stretching 35 metres allows access to cars and pedestrians
from the basement car park in the new mall across the road
at One Fullerton, also owned by Sino Land. The new
three-storey mall is built over reclaimed land and has
shops, cafes and restaurants above its basement carpark.
The Fullerton Hotel,
which has its official opening planned for 31 Dec 2000,
looks set to wow the hearts of Singaporeans and tourists
alike into the new millennium. For more pictures,
