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.

grassroots leaders at the Kallang Theatre.
below the full text of his speech in English:
These are exciting times. But they are also
unsettling. Exciting, because of the vast opportunities
that are emerging. Unsettling, because the changes
sweeping the world will require major adjustments in our economy
2 Take for instance
the political developments in our neighbourhood.
3 In Indonesia, the stability under Soeharto has given way to a
period of uncertainty. Indonesia faces grave political,
economic and social difficulties. How events turn out in
Indonesia will affect its neighbours and investor confidence in
the region, including Singapore.
