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's JING Junhong,
31, lost her chance at playing in an Olympic final for table-tennis when
she lost to China's Li Ju (ranked No.2 in the world) in the women's
singles semi-finals yesterday. But she can still fight for a bronze
today at 4pm (Singapore time). If she wins the medal, she will have won
for Singapore its second ever Olympic medal.
Education Minister TEO Chee
Hean yesterday said that it would take the Education Ministry two to
three years to decide on PM GOH's suggestion that all primary schools go
single-session. It will have to balance benefits - such as better access
to facilities and more attention devoted to pupils - with practical
considerations, such as the need for more teachers, land and schools, he
Many Thai labourers in
Singapore are taking amphetamines so they can work longer hours to pay
off debts incurred from hefty job-placement fees, said Mr Raksak
Chokchaisathit, a labour counsellor at the Thai Embassy here. The
workers pay between S$10 and S$15 a tablet, while the daily wage of each
unskilled worker is only S$18 to S$20, and that of skilled workers is
S$20 to S$25, he said. He revealed that Singapore had at least 62,500
Thai workers, the second largest number after Taiwan.
Close to half of the calls
to the Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) hotlines were about relationship
problems. And the bulk of callers were women under 40 years old. In this
group, the younger women who called were worried about boyfriends,
family and friends. With older women, it was concern about marriage,
in-laws and children that made them call for help. On average, SOS
counsellors handled 97 calls a day, or a total of 35,232 calls, from
April 1999 to March 2000, said SOS which released its annual report
Beijing: China has sentenced
six men to death for kidnapping 240 women and selling them to farmers

The defendants headed a gang of about 90 members who kidnapped women

Jiangsu where they were handed over to 20 peasant gang members. The
gangsters then sold the women to peasants. The kidnappings began in
