Item description for Singapore Perspectives 2007: A New Singapore (Singapore Perspectives) by Tan Tarn How...
The Singapore Perspectives series is a yearly publication that provides critical analysis of emerging trends and issues Singapore faces in terms of social, economic and political development. It is a quick and essential reference for understanding the broad policy discussions that animate thought leaders, policy-makers and the public in the country during the immediate period or that are likely to do so in the short and medium term. This edition focuses on how Singapore will cope with the social impact of, first, the development of a dual economy and, second, the adoption of new communications technologies. There is a section on the political implications of an aggressive new policy to promote immigration as Singapore s response to the global competition for talent, and, finally, the future of regionalism and ASEAN. Co-published by the think-tank, the Institute of Policy Studies, Singapore, this is a useful publication for those with an interest in understanding the governance challenges facing a small, highly globalised economy and nation-state, or those who want a quick feel of the pulse of Singapore.
