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.
From visiting a local beer brewery or artisan soya sauce factory or a sugar factory to an urban community farm. Join us for Made In Singapore and experience an adrenaline rush of Singapore’s economy!
