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.

Abdurrahman Wahid yesterday dismissed a second senior general as his
government raised the ante to try to solve the growing violence in
Indonesia. Palace sources said General Fachrul Razi, the Indonesian
Defence Force (TNI) deputy chief, was replaced because of his alleged

darkness late on Tuesday as the authorities predicted confidently an
imminent end to the five-month-old hostage crisis. Cameraman Jean-

into the bushes as rebels fleeing a military offensive led hostages in a
column along a narrow jungle path.
