About Singapore

Singapore continues to be well-positioned for growth with opportunities for talented individuals in Singapore despite the slowdown in global economy due to its prudent planning and continued investment into its economy.

Its economy grew by 7.7% in 2007, around 2.5% in 2008, and while growth projection has lowered for 2009, its economy remains competitive. Singapore remains an attractive place to do business and companies are committed to fulfill their projected investments while others are making new investments.

Singapore is very open to global talent and it has proven to be a very strong talent magnet in recent years, with individuals and families of all nationalities flocking to work and live right here in the centre of Asia.

Asia remains a growth region and Singapore's strategic location in the heart of Asia will position it to capture the growth potential. Singapore is positioned to be the talent destination in Asia and is already working to make this city even more livable. With the anticipated recovery from the recession, talent who choose to work and live in Singapore will thrive in being part of Singapore's and Asia's growth story.
