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.

employees can take a full day off each year to do voluntary work under
the company's Adopt-A-Charity programme which started yesterday.
Narcotics officers made
their biggest cannabis haul this year when they caught a drug trafficker
and a client on Monday morning. Officers found five one-kilogram blocks
of cannabis in a plastic bag and S$7690 in cash when they arrested a man
as he was getting out of a car beside the Geylang Methodist Church near
Aljunied MRT Station.
A man who had been sacked by
McDonald's for being rude to customers attacked another employee with a
knife that very night while she was going home. Yesterday, CHANG Yau
Fook, 45, admitted hurting Madam ANG Swee Choo, 52, in the arm and was
sentenced to nine months in jail.
A man took a pill for a sore
throat but choked on the medicine and died. NAI Yong Heng, 45, a
delivery man, was at home with his pregnant wife when he died on Monday
afternoon. Their two daughters, aged five and six, were in kindergarten
at the time.
People renovating their
homes can now buy an insurance plan which insures homeowners against
errant contractors. NTUC Income's Renovation policy, launched last
Friday, sets a premium of 1 per cent on total renovation costs.
Policyholders will be covered for the length of the contract and for
another six months against defects, such as warping of carpentry works,
discoloration of building materials and cracks in tiles. But homeowners
taking the policy must engage contractors, selected by Income, who are
reputed for their good work.

London: Pressure on the
airline industry, rocked by the death of a 28-year-old woman from
"economy-class syndrome", is likely to increase with the
publication of a report by the British government calling for better
health and safety conditions for passengers. The report by Britain's
House of Lord's science and technology select committee, due in three
weeks' time, will recommend that airlines give passengers more explicit
preventive advice about deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) before long-haul
flights, the Guardian newspaper reported yesterday.
