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.

Starting 1 Oct 2000,
motorists and insurers will have a new avenue to settle third-party
insurance claims quickly without lawyers. They can refer claims of
S$3000 or less to a new Tribunal on Motor Third Party Property Damage
Claims. General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA) management
committee member Edmund Lim will chair the tribunal. To refer a claim to
the tribunal, a motorist fills out a form available from GIA's office in
Amoy Street or at www.gia.org.sg on
the web. All motor insurers are bound by the decision of the tribunal
because all 38 GIA members have signed an agreement recognising the
authority of the tribunal.
