Estimated population of Singapore citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.

Malays                      14%

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.

Today Friday 21 Apr 2000

In Singapore

Bus, MRT & LRT fares to go up between 5 and 20 cents in June 2000. Public transport fares have not gone up since 1997.

From tomorrow, petrol will be cheaper. Savings for petrol and diesel range from 5 cents to 7 cents a litre. The price adjustment reflects the recent global easing of world crude oil prices. 

Singapore's non-oil domestic exports rose a strong 17.1% to S$9.76 billion last month.

A senior tax officer in an accounting firm Tan Eng Hoe, 32, became the second person in two weeks to be sent to jail for renting out his flat to illegal immigrants. A district court yesterday sentenced him to the minimum mandatory six months' jail.

The teacher who made news last month when he got his pupils to slap 14 classmates who had not brought their worksheets to school has been sacked. The Ministry of education has confirmed that the Jiemin Primary School teacher's contract was terminated with effect from 15 Apr 2000, Shin Min Daily News reported. 

Asia 

Canberra: Prime Minister John Howard, concerned over the growing number of problem gamblers, vowed yesterday to pursue a total ban on Internet gambling, despite strong opposition around the country.   

Around the world

New York: Mrs Hillary Clinton, running for the post of New York senator, has returned a donation of US$22000 (S$37000) from a businesswoman linked to a convicted drug trafficker.

Paris: One of the great mysteries of European history has been resolved after DNA tests revealed that the son of executed French King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette died as a child in prison. Last December, the presumed heart of the child king was removed from its resting place to enable scientists to compare its DNA make-up with samples from living and dead members of his family - including a lock of Marie-Antoinette's hair.
