CHIEF IRISNA

MADE IN SINGAPORE

WITH IRIS

Ever wondered about Singapore’s super accelerated economic transformation? How did this happen in 50 short years? What bold decisions had to be made? We intersperse this story with three fascinating stops to get snippets on the importance of our port, food manufacturing and farms in Singapore.

ITINERARY

The development of Singapore to a first world nation in record time has been hailed the world over as an economic miracle. Singapore’s nominal GDP grew from 500 USD in 1965 to 56000 USD in 2015, on par with Germany and the United States. Yet this remarkable story is hardly ever told.

How did this small country with limited natural resources manage to pull this off? What were the major industries that helped shaped the economy of Singapore then and now? What are the major shifts and pivots we made? For example, how and why did port and shipping activities morph over the past years?

Back in the 80s, we were obsessed with the word hub. And being a hub of many industries - banking, oil refinery, aviation, and many others. So afraid of being left out that we made it an art form to be globally relevant.

Join us as we bring this story to life and open your eyes to what's made in Singapore.

 

Made in Singapore is available for group bookings from September onwards.  Till further notice, this tour is open to group bookings only.  Please contact us at bookings@tribe-tours.com or call us at +6564631031.

Clear, crisp and precise is how I will describe Iris' delivery. It is easy to speak fast. Sometimes too fast to be understood clearly. Which is why, Iris' measured relaxed pace is a huge hit especially with guests who enjoy smooth radio quality voice control and speed. But what makes her one of Singapore's best English guides is her depth of research to bring out the best stories. She is also THE best guide on Indian culture. Islandwide :)
