• Here are some examples of the facilities that are offered to all in Marina Bay Sands.
Interesting structures or landmarks have a part in turning MBS into atourist attraction as well.
2nd factor- Leadership is key.• For the country to prosper, we must have good leaders.• They have to do what benefits the country, not what is popular among fellow citizens.• An example is the building of the casino. When the government first announced this proposition, many people were against it, as they believed it would bring many social problems. However, the government knew that the casino would play a big part in helping Singapore prosper.
3rd factor- Reward for work, Work for Reward.• As mentioned before, the construction of MBS created many job opportunities for people.• The government rewards people based on their achievements and skills.• This encourages people to work harder for a better life.• By doing this, the government is actually increasing the competiveness between Singapore and other countries, as there will be more talented people in the country.
4th factor-A S take F or E ve ryone , O p p ortu nitie s F or All• The Government will create opportunities for Singaporeans, regardless of their abilities, to realise their full potential. It will not only develop Singapore as a land of opportunity, but also diverse opportunities. It will create more avenues for Singaporeans to pursue their interests in fields that contribute to Singapores development as a vibrant and balanced society e.g. sports, arts and culture. However, while ensuring ample opportunities for everyone, the Government cannot, nor should it guarantee equal outcomes.
• For example, to discourage citizens from entering the casino, a high entrance fee is required for all residents. Only foreigners were granted free access.• This proves that the government listened to the citizens feedback and pleas, and did their best to improvise and meet the citizen’s needs.
