  2. 2. Singapore – where is it ?
  3. 3. NIC (newly industrialised country) Gained independence in 1963 and since then, the citizens’ standard of living has risen dramatically. It is the 5th wealthiest country in the world in terms of GDP per capita. 710.2 km2 – London is just over twice the size of Singapore
  4. 4. “To sustain growth and vitality in our economy, we need a growing population in Singapore with talents in every field.” Said by Senior Minister Mr Goh Chok Tong on August 19th, 2006
  5. 5. A problem?
  6. 6. SG50: Jubilee baby gifts • For every new citizen born in 2015
  7. 7. •state-sponsored matchmaking events •rock climbing for couples, • a love boat river race, •vertical marathon called “lovers’ challenge” in which couples run up a 43-storey office tower. •Private sponsors have made their own contributions: •tango parties • spa packages •Weekend getaways like a “love boat cruise” to a luxury resort with sex counselors, fertility seminars, therapeutic massages and a host of aphrodisiacs from which to choose. •Even Pizza Hut offers a three-course “love meal” including a heart-shaped pizza. Romancing Singapore!
  8. 8. http://www.babybonus.msf.gov.sg/parent/ http://www.heybaby.sg/index.html £1 = 2 Singapore Dollars
  9. 9. Were there other ways to boost Singapore’s population? • Singapore has experienced that importing foreigners can boost population size and sustain economic growth- but it is only encouraging graduates. • It already has a large amount of foreigners, only 74% are Singaporeans- the government wants the current cultural mix to stay the same- ‘foreigners’ are still subject to the ‘Stop at two’ policy • It could create a wide culture or conflict.
  10. 10. Read the notes in the booklet. Compare the policies used in Singapore and France – which do you think might have been the most successful and why?
