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 Yaba scourge in Thailand
has threatened to spill over to other countries, including Singapore, as
traffickers flood the streets with millions of the red tablets. Some
pills have already landed on SIngapore's shores. The Central Narcotics
Bureau (CNB) has seized more than 10,000 Yaba tablets in the past six
months - more than twice 1998's haul when the drug first surfaced.

offenders, an Indonesian and a Thai, were handed over to the police.
