Little Red Dot

Singapore is a city - state in South East Asia, also known as the Little Red Dot. It is one of Southeast Asia's most dynamic and modern cities.

This small country is a melting pot of different cultures, cuisines and architectural styles. The name Singapore comes from Singa Pura which means Lion City in Sanskrit. 

A Malayan Prince coined the name in the 13th century. He most likely mistook a lion for a Malayan Tiger. 
The Merlion statue personifies Singapore. The lion head on the body of a fish which symbolizes Singapore's origin as a fishing village. 

The infrastructure is well developed, open business policies are practiced, intellectual property rights are respected and the country is politically stable. In fact the World Bank 2015 Report found that Singapore is the easiest place to do business!

The Port of Singapore is very busy! It is currently the world's busiest transshipping  port and is the second busiest in terms of total shipping tonnage. On average the port handles about 60 ships and 91,000 containers every day. In 2014, Singapore handled 33.5 million containers. 

Lined end-to-end, that is enough to encircle the  globe four times! Almost everything needed for day to day life in Singapore needs to be imported. This means about 6 percent of the containers end their journey here. Singapore also handles half of the world's annual crude oil shipping. 

Current expansion to new terminals will be completed at the end of 2017. This expansion will enable Singapore to handle 50 million containers per year!
Geographically Singapore is at the crossroads between the East and the West. Ships pass between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean through the Singapore Strait.

Singapore has come a long way from its humble beginnings to the economic powerhouse it is today.
