Singapur is booming. Gross domestic product expanded at a 26 percent annual pace in the second quarter. The Government predicts GDP rise of 13 to 15 percent in 2010.
Singapur has a rotten tropical rainforest climate, with temperatures ranging from 22 to 34 °C. Relative humidity is 90% in the morning and 60% in the afternoon.
Singapur is one of the most diverse countries in the world. 42% of the population are foreigners (from China, Malaysia, Philippines, North America, Middle East, Europe, Australia and India). From the residents, 74.2% are Chinese (from several origins), Malays 13.4%, Indians 9.2%, Eurasians, Arabs and others 3.2%.
There are Affirmative Action type programs in Singapur but apparently they are "sensitive" aka they are not discussed in public. Example taken from a Parlamentary debate:
Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools nurture the best talents that will form the next generation of leaders in the various fields. There is a misunderstanding of the role that SAP schools play in Singapore.What did he say? Better take a look at Miss Singapur.
