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.

The Education Ministry said
yesterday that it will use the American Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT)
for university admission from the year 2003. But it will also look into
developing its own test in a few years' time.
Schools which make efforts
to improve the physical, social and emotional well-being of their
teachers and students can now vie for a new award. The Cherish
(Championing Efforts Resulting in Improved School Health) awards will
recognise primary and secondary schools that incorporate
health-promotion activities into their curriculum and environment, as
well as the community. It was launched yesterday by Education Minister
TEO Chee Hean.
Auckland, New Zealand: New
Zealand dentists are concerned that a generation of young people are
doing serious damage to their teeth because of the current health fad
for drinking filtered and bottled water. Leading dentists fear that an
increasing number of chldren and teenagers are inadvertently cutting
fluoride from their diet by replacing tap water with bottled and
filtered varieties, the New Zealand Herald reported yesterday. The
dentists said a lack of fluoride - a mineral which prevents tooth decay
- is causing a rise in cavities among young, otherwise healthy people.
Around the world
London: Two-thirds of
British adults believe that there are too many immigrants living in
Britain, a bombshell survey reveals. An even higher number of Britons,
eight out of 10, feel that asylum seekers come to the country not to
flee persecution, but because they consider it a soft touch. It is
commonly believed that there is widespread resentment in Britain against
people from overseas but the new poll is seen to be the first proof of
it. The survey, titled "Britain Today - Are We An Intolerant
Nation?", was carried out by the public opinion research
organisation, Mori, for the Reader's Digest.
