    How will Singapore grow with such little land?


  • admin

    Singapore started its reclamation of the land project since the early 1970s. They increased their land size to 36% of their original size.
    Singapore is a group of islands. The second biggest island Pulau Ubin has been purposely kept untouched as part of its planning space for future generations. Singaporeans invest enthusiastically within the Asian region. At present, their investments in the neighboring state of Johore (Malaysia) and Batam / Palau/ Tanjong Pinang/Karimun (Indonesia) in textiles, farming, and oil-related industries cater to the demands of Singapore. This saves cost on transportation and perishable products to reach Singapore with minimum fuss.
    Singapore aims for an optimum population of 6 million without including the floating/ working foreigners. As it is, Singapore is the most densely populated city-state in the world. Their careful urban planning has been their strength, and it will remain so in the future. This city-state with no slums. It is also actively exploring the development of city space underground, and her underground retail space within the city limits is ever increasing.

    Developed areas usually redeveloped after a few decades building code can be raised again to allow for even taller high rises in the future, coastal areas can be reclaimed.
    Another thing unknown to outsiders or they may not be aware is there are huge pockets of undeveloped 'rural' lands totaling about a third of the island currently in the hands of the military used for training purposes and over decades some of that land has been slowly released back to the government for development for Singapore “to grow.”
    The land is not a big problem.
