|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 suspends import of meat from United
Kingdom due to foot & mouth disease outbreak in UK
immediate effect, the Agri-food and Veterinary Authority (AVA)
has suspended the import of meat from the United
Kingdom (UK) into Singapore due to the outbreak of Foot
and Mouth Disease (FMD) in UK. This suspension affects
pork, mutton and game meats. Poultry and game meats of
avian origin are not covered by the suspension. The EU has
also placed restrictions on UK meats. Beef from the UK
continues to be banned from Singapore due to Mad Cow
different from the Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD)
which affected some children here. FMD affects
cloven-hoofed animals such as cattle, pigs, sheep and
goats. It is caused by a virus. Its symptoms in affected
animals include high fever, loss of appetite and excessive
salivation. It produces blisters in the mouth, on the
tongue and in between the hooves. When the blisters break,
ulcers are formed. It is a very painful condition. Because
of the blisters, the animals stop feeding and suffer from
disease cannot be passed to humans through eating meat or
drinking pasteurised milk. AVA's suspension on meat from
the UK is to protect Singapore's FMD-free status and our
causes economic losses to the farmers and the country.
Livestock and products from the affected country will not
be accepted by importing countries because of the highly
contagious nature of the disease. The infection is
air-borne and animals usually get infected through
contaminated infected livestock products and contact with
the infected animals. In
2000, a total of 4,425 tonnes of frozen pork valued at $11
million was imported from UK. This represented only 6% of
Singapore’s pork supply. Last
year, a total of 318,000 pigs, 28,000 tonnes of frozen
pork and 24,000 tonnes of chilled pork were imported into
Singapore from other approved sources.
