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.

Singapore Airlines is
spending S$700 million over the next three years to roll out its
e-business plans to service passengers "anywhere, anytime and on
any device". Mr Goh Choon Phong, senior vice-president of SIA's
commercial technology division said yesterday the investment, which
includes computer hardware and software based in Singapore, would help
its passengers stay connected around the world.
Media group Singapore Press
Holdings (SPH) yesterday announced that it has set up two separate
television news units within its English, and Malay; and Chinese
newspaper divisions. The two units will produce news and current-affairs
programmes for two channels to be run by SPH MediaWorks, and hope to be
ready to do so by early next year.
At least 47 people fell sick
after sewage leaked into the water tanks at Bukit Timah Plaza last week.
Most were residents of Sherwood Towers - a condominium at the plaza -
and the rest were workers there. PUB and ENV officers are now working
with the management corporation to clean and sterilise the water system
in the affected blocks.
Beijing: China Daily cited
China Telecom as saying that special mailboxes will be used to receive
complaints from those who receive unsolicited electronic mail. Under the
new provision, any subscriber using China Telecom Internet Protocol
network will be warned, or have his service suspended or permanently
terminated, if he is found to have sent unwanted e-mail which annoys
other users or affects the performance of the network.

BodySearch, costing US$140,000 (S$240,000), is being used by US Customs
inspectors at six airports to detect contraband. The low-power X-ray
penetrates only a few millimetres below the skin, seeing through
clothing and eliminating the need for strip or pat-down searches.
BodySearch scans are so sharp that the shape of a person's navel is
visible, along with the shapes of other, more private parts. And that
has raised the concern of groups who say it violates
