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.

Singapore's water is clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

  Pioneer Magazine has accompanied many a national serviceman through his stint in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), first in active service, and then in Operationally Ready National Service.

  Though the layout of the magazine has changed over the years, in keeping with the times, one thing remains constant- it continues to enlighten us on the capabilities of our defence force. From the early Hunters to the operational F16s, the magazine has kept us in the know. In its March 2000 issue, the magazine highlights the RSAF's Black knights. These knights represent the elite of the air force, manoeuvring in the air in strict precision while executing daring acrobatic stunts. Their very presence attests to the RSAF's coming of age, and is valid testimony that our combat pilots are on par with the best in the world.

  A CD-ROM on the book "Defending Singapore in the 21st Century" comes with this month's issue. Get a copy today and be mesmerised by the technology of the SAF.
