Principles of governance Leadership is key Work for reward and reward for work A stake for everyone and Opportunities for all Anticipating change and staying relevant
Relation to MBS The MBS has boosted the economy, it is projected to stimulate an addition of $2.7 billion or 0.8% to Singapores Gross Domestic Product by 2015, employing 10,000 people directly and 20,000 jobs being created in other industries.
This shows the foresight the Singapore Government had when they thought of the idea of having a Integrated resort.
Sands design is superior to other bids in terms of pedestrian circulation and layout, and it also fit in with the Marina Bay landscape best. Hotel towers was set back from the waterfront to open up expansive views of the city and the entire Marina Bay, making the skyline for Singapores downtown more attractive and distinctive
Thus, it increases Singapore’s tourism appeal. This also shows how the Singapore government is anticipating change and staying relevant globally by staying competitive to other countries.
However, the idea was rejected by a minority of Singaporeans for fear of gambling addictions and other problems leading to social unrest. The government continued with the idea and showed how they thought for Singapore and not only doing ideas that were popular among the people.
