Singapore has adopted an open immigration policy with a strong belief in human resource as the most valuable and important tool in the country's economic growth. In recent months, the government has also spoken of the need to attract even more foreigners--whom the government calls "Foreign Talent". (The word "foreign" is not a pejorative in this part of the world. It is preferred over "alien".) Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew, no less, has put his full backing behind this policy.

However, there is some concern that less expensive and talented foreigners could displace equally talented but more expensive locals. When the Singapore government have a plan, it will generate their focus on it to ensure it gets done. There are several initiatives to attract Foreign Talent to work, live and play in Singapore.

The government is focusing its efforts on five industrial employment clusters: electronics, chemicals, engineering, IT, and biomedical sciences. Singapore relies on foreign workers and talents at both ends of the skills ladder. Singapore aims to continue to lure global talent and top management to its shores, most significantly in IT jobs and in the technology industry, and has introduced a new class of taxpayers, called "not ordinarily resident," who will earn tax exemptions on income earned outside of the country.

Manufacturing is the economy's main engine of employment growth, with electronics accounting for nearly half of the sector. The chemical industry is the second largest manufacturing sector, and Singapore is also the third largest petroleum-refining center in the world.

IT (Information Technology)

Singapore has invested heavily to develop a pro-IT environment, which has made the country a good place for adopting and deploying new IT products and services. Recent developments in the IT industry have focused on the advancement of wireless technology, such as satellite, infrared, and Bluetooth technologies for communication via palm-top devices, mobile phones, and computers. A Wired with Wireless program launched by IDA (Infocomm Development Authority) currently focuses on wireless multimedia, mobile commerce, and location-based services. Also important to the IT industry is the adoption of broadband capabilities. Singapore is now home to at least six broadband access providers, 200 broadband applications and services, and more than 300 broadband industry players.


With the introduction of the new water, the government has generate some of its focus in the area of Wafer Engineering. Optics, environmental technology, alternative energy, and industrial IT applications are new engineering areas that are expected to see employment growth. In order to support employment growth in these areas, the government is investing to develop and upgrade the workforce capabilities in design and manufacturing in order to provide high-value-added engineering services and products to the global market. The precision-engineering segment is the largest employer in the engineering sector, accounting for 50 percent of the workforce.

Accounting And Finance

In Singapore there is always a need for top talents for wealth management, captial markets, treasury, investment consumer banking, transactional banking and risk management. Across the spectrum of job types, revenue-generation and product-management roles at the middle to senior level are more in demand than operational support.

Sales And Marketing

Singapore's economy is shifting from an industrial base to a knowledge base. To this end, the country needs workers who are flexible and comfortable working with new knowledge and technologies. The government is currently focusing on four industries: electronics, chemicals, engineering, and bio-medical sciences. Sales and marketing professionals can find excellent opportunities in these areas.


Highly skilled, qualified, and experienced international workers are needed in many of Singapore’s business sectors, particularly in business management and management consulting. Singapore is pushing to become a global economic knowledge economy with an emphasis on developing a highly skilled labor force. Those with the skills to compete will do well in this economy.
