      Magix Broadband Zone opens at Suntec City

The Singapore Census of Population is here again.

  220 000 randomly selected households representing one-fifth of the household population here are being sent notification letters in six batches from 21 Mar 2000 till May 2000.

  Various census reports will be released to the public from late August 2000.

  Chief Statistician, Paul Cheung, pointed out at a media briefing on 17 Mar 2000  that one in every four people here is now a non-Singaporean. This has lots of implications on social interaction. The number of marriages between Singaporeans and non-Singaporeans is more than 20% of all marriages.

     

     Magix Broadband Zone has opened at Suntec City. It's a one-stop centre where you can experience for yourself the superior benefits of broadband technology.
