I have always like Singapore. The country is neat and clean. The people, majority of them are well discipline. The government looks stable. Their currency is appreciating. It brings me to the point of asking myself this question. Would I choose to do business in Singapore" What are my chances of survival there? Anyone with experiences in Singapore would like to comment your views here?

Singapore is a great place to set up shop and do business. I am not saying this because I am a Singaporean. Singapore is a very pro-business country, because we lack natural resources, and depend greatly on investments, trade and tourism to prosper. So the government is wooing foreign companies to set up their operational HQs, factories and channel their investments here, while giving tax and other incentives. Many companies use Singapore as a springboard to expand to the region around, including China and India. We also have a highly educated workforce, excellent infrastructure, good living standard and great food, if you love to eat. But the weather can be hot and humid at certain times of the year.
