Singapore Chronicles: Trade & Investment
- About the Series
This book examines the crucial role of trade and investment in Singapore’s economy. Using globalisation as a backdrop, the author explains both its economic benefits for Singapore and the vulnerabilities which it creates. The book studies the impact of foreign direct investment on the economy before the Global Financial Crisis occurred, and analyses the structural shifts that took place following that shock. Special attention is paid to the impact of free trade agreements and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on Singapore’s trade and investment strategy. The book concludes with a look at how Singapore might preserve its place in the new globalised economy.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press jointly launched the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015.
This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.
Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as a historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.
