Singapore City

 

A general misconception about the country of Singapore is that it is made up of one island when in fact sixty three islets surround its main island. The total land area of the main island is 682 square kilometers.

Don’t be fooled, however, by its small size. Its economy matches that of any other first world country.

In just over a hundred years, Singapore has developed into a booming centre of industry and commerce. Its prior role as a port of entry has lessened, as the country has intensified its base for manufacturing.
The world’s busiest port, Singapore has more than six hundred shipping lines which send container ships, super tankers, and luxury liners alongside wooden lighters and coastal fishing boats.

A major oil refining and distribution center in the world, Singapore is also major manufacturer of electronic goods and foremost in repairing and shipbuilding. It is also one of Asia’s most significant centers for banking with over a hundred banks. Singapore boasts of a world-class network of communications which connects the country with other countries through satellite, telephone,

and all-day telegraph systems. This is the mode upon which business transactions are made possible.

The county’s excellent facilities, strategic location, tourist attractions, and intriguing contrasts in cultural all contribute to Singapore’s success as a prime destination for both pleasure and business.
