Singapore has obviously had some advantages, it was in the right place a the right time both economically and geographically to capitalise on the growth of Asia as a global region of trade. But prosperity wouldn’t have just happened to a small little spit of land off the coast of Malaysia with very little in the way of arable land or natural resources. It did the right things to ensure it was the go to middleman for as much as it could be a part of in the region by developing the right mix of the right economic policies and not containing itself to one ideology to dictate the direction of the entire nation.
