The workers will hence have a chance to work to sustain their own living. The system ‘Work for Reward, Reward for Work’ is also used to encourage workers to deliver the best quality of their service and have a positive attitude in their work.
When quality service is provided, it will bringabout an boost in tourism as well as consumerismof the foreigners. THEREFORE, TOURISM GROWS ! GOODS & SERVICES CONSUMED GROWS ! ECONOMIC GROWS !FROM LITTLE RED DOT toCENTRAL OFATTRACTION !
How has it helped Singapore to sustain its growth?• The government has anticipated changes and stayed relevant as it has made the necessary changes to accommodate to the growing population and to increase the quality of service to have a place in the tourism industry in the world.

The Marina BarrageSingapore has been very dependent on other country for waterresources. However, with the increase in water supply, it ismore sustainable now and can afford to spend more resourcesin other areas such as education, which is also essential forSingapore to remain competitive and sustainable.•The Marina Barrage is the result of former Minister MentorLee Kuan Yew’s vision nearly two decades ago when heenvisaged damming the mouth of the Marina Channel tocreate a freshwater reservoir.•Hence, not only does MBS displayedthe principle of anticipating changesand stay relevant,it also showed that leadership is key.
Eco friendly solar fan• The eco-friendly solar fan is designed to conserve energy, hence less resources is used. In this current world, resources is becoming more scarce, hence the implementation of this fan has demonstrated the government of being relevant, always planning for the future development.
In conclusion…• Marina Bay Sands has demonstrated the 4 principles of governance. It has various infrastructures and programmes implemented and has helped Singapore to overcome many challenges, such as water shortage, unemployment and economic recession. Hence, Marina Bay Sands is a model of how the 4 principles of Governance have been deployed to sustain the growth in the 21st century. Lessons learnt from this model can be applied into other areas too.
