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.

It's Monday again.
We're already into the last week of September. There's only a
quarter of 2000 left for us to spend. These days, time seems to
pass all too quickly, lulling us into a false sense of
insecurity - why is that so? Have you noticed most of us are
just letting time pass us by? I am guilty of such behaviour. Are
I mean, I have told myself I have done quite a
lot of work in 2000, but it's true - I have lost my momentum. I
am just letting time pass me by. While one side of me says I can
do more, the other just resigns itself to satisfaction with what
I have achieved so far. Now that I think marks the start of a
decline in standards I have set for myself. Are you also equally
guilty of such behaviour?
If so, take this
opportunity to re-energise and push ahead again. Think of the
next three months as the start of a new period. Write down your
goals for 2000 again on a fresh sheet of paper; strike out those
you have achieved so far; congratulate yourself and add new
goals to those left on the paper. Today is just about as good a
time as any to start.
