Singapore is a highly globalized city state. Technology, logistics, financial, services...name it, Singapore has it. Singapore does not have domestic market and there is no way to rely on domestic consumption. They need to export their goods and services, they need to expand their economy to keep the economy afloat. Singapore economy heavily relies to global economy.

The bottomline is, Singapore is for ambitous businessmen, traders and top-notch professionals. Everybody else, whether foreigners or citizens are just merely workers!
Honestly i dont think it is wise and care to paint a perfect/rosy image of Singapore to outside world, i paint a REAL picture of Singapore.. Good or Bad, dont sweep under the carpet that is what i believe

But i do agree with the statement you made that i have bolded...

^to be honest i think that applies anywhere to the business world, businessman, traders etc are attracted to major business cities around the globe, and these top notch people are the one who runs most of the things. Everybody else is basically just workers to keep the economy running.
