Singapore's rapid evolution from a modest trading post under colonial rule into a prosperous, self-confident nation is one of the notable success stories of the second half of the 20th century. International trade and investment linkages have been the cornerstones of the city-state's economic success (more than 7 per cent per annum during the period 1970-2005).This book offers an overview of the Singapore economy with emphasis on its global trade and investment linkages and policies. It analyzes patterns and policies of Singapore's trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) and discusses issues related to its services sector, focusing on its multilateral and bilateral commitments.The book will be a good reference source for business executives, journalists, and diplomats, as well as students and academics specializing in Asian studies and economic development.Contents: Introduction: Economic Structure and External OrientationForeign Direct Investment (FDI): Policies, Trends and PatternsSingapore's Trade Performance and Patterns with Emphasis on East and South AsiaTrade and Investment Related Infrastructure and PoliciesServices Trade Policies and IssuesGrowing Economic Relations with India: A Case-Study in Deepening Integration between South Asia and East AsiaPolicy ImplicationsReadership: Students and academics in Asian Studies, business executives, journalists, diplomats.
