Singapore, an island city with a land area of only 640 km2 and with a present population approaching 3M, achieved independence only in 1965. The need to ensure sustainable development resulted in a nationwide programme for industrialisation. However, the lack of natural resources and the shortage of cheap labour, which became critical in the 1980s, inevitably culminated in the country’s approach towards high-tech, high value-added industries.
