Singapore is one of the smallest, most density populated and most prosperous countries in the world. Most of the population lives on Singapore Island; the rest inhabit 54 neighbouring islets.

Modern Singapore was founded in 1819 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles of the British East India Company, and later became a British crown colony. It was incorporated into the Federation of Malaysia in 1963, but an independent Republic. The population of Singapore is composite. The Chinese comprise 77%, Malays 15% and Indian 6%. Lee Kuan Yew was PM for 31 years (1959-90), S.R. Nathan, a Singaporean Indian ethnicity was elected unopposed as the country’s sixth president in August 1999.

The country is an entrepot for Malaysia and other Southeast Asian states. It is one of the world’s largest ports. The chief exports are rubber and tin. Industries include tin smelting, rubber, lumber ship-building, textiles and oil refining (Singapore is the largest oil refining centre in Asia), machinery, chemical products, food, tourism (7.52 m tourists in 2001) and banking, Standards in health, education and housing are high. Only about 1.7% of the total area is used for farming. Most food is imported.

On January 1, 1996, Singapore was graduated to the status of a ‘developed country’ by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). In May ’97, the four Asian ‘tigers’ (Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea) were added to the industrialized countries by IMF.
