Mind the Gaps: Singapore Business in China
China burst onto the world stage in the mid-1980s and in the past decade has been transformed into a giant magnet for FDI, attracting capital from all over the world. Everyone wants a piece of the China action. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the region of Southeast Asia, tucked as it is geographically beneath China's southern flank. Much of the FDI inflow into China has been at the expense of Southeast Asia. But this has been offset by new opportunities created through China's rapid economic expansion. This book provides an insightful and objective analysis on how to be successful in China, especially for Singapore businessmen. The authors have eloquently distilled several important lessons that have become apparent for business success in China.

HDR Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a city-state island country off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the equator, in Southeast Asia. It is separated from Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north and from Indonesia's Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. Singapore is the world's fourth leading financial centre and a cosmopolitan world city, playing a key role in international trade and finance. The port of Singapore is one of the five busiest ports in the world. Singapore has a long history of immigration. There are slightly over 5 million people in Singapore of which 2.91 million are born locally. Forty-three percent of the population in Singapore are foreign-born. Singapore has a diverse population made up mainly of Asians (mostly Chinese, Malays, Indians, and Asians of various other descents) and some Caucasians. A.T. Kearney named Singapore the most globalised country in the world in 2001 in its Globalization Index. The Economist Intelligence Unit in its "Quality-of-Life Index" ranks Singapore as having the best quality of life in Asia and eleventh overall in the world. Singapore possesses the world's tenth largest foreign reserves. The country also maintains armed forces that are technologically advanced and well-equipped. Before independence in 1965, Singapore had a GDP per capita of $511, the third highest in East Asia at the time. After independence, foreign direct investment and a state-led drive for industrialisation based on plans by former Deputy Prime Minister Goh Keng Swee and Albert Winsemius created a modern economy. After a contraction of -6.8% in the 4th quarter of 2009, Singapore claimed the title of fastest-growing economy in the world, with GDP growth of 14.5% for the year 2010. Singapour, en forme longue la Republique de Singapour, en anglais Singapore et Republic of Singapore, en mandarin Xinjiapo, ??? et Xinjiapo Gongheguo, ??????, en malais Singapura et Republik Singapura, en tamoul Ci?kappur, ??????????? et Ci?kappur Kudiyarasu, ??????????? ????????, est une Cite-Etat d’Asie de l'Est. Sa superficie est de 647,8 km?. Elle comprend 64 iles, dont la principale est l’ile de Singapour (584,8 km?). Cette ile est tres densement urbanisee. Cite-Etat et ile au bout de la peninsule malaise dont elle est separee par le detroit de Johor, Singapour est connue dans le monde entier et souvent montree en exemple pour son extraordinaire reussite economique. Apres l'independance, en 1965, Singapour a su avec tres peu de ressources naturelles et des problemes socio-economiques importants (emeutes raciales, chomage massif, difficultes de logement et d'acces a l'eau), devenir un des pays les plus developpes et les plus prosperes du monde. La ville, cite souveraine, est un reduit chinois au c?ur meme du monde malais : la population est tres majoritairement composee de Chinois (76,8%). De cette confrontation ethnique sont nes en partie les troubles qui ont accelere son retrait de la Malaisie, le 9 aout 1965. Dans les annees 1980, le pays fait partie des Quatre dragons asiatiques, des Etats en transition et au developpement economique effrene. En 2009, Singapour est le 4e pays au monde en termes de PPA par habitant apres le Qatar, le Luxembourg et la Norvege. Plaque tournante commerciale et financiere entre la zone Pacifique et l'Europe, la ville doit son essor a sa situation maritime exceptionnelle a l'extremite est du detroit de Malacca : C'est la cite marchande aux confins de l'Orient, le premier port au monde en termes d'exportations et de trafic maritime. La population singapourienne dispose d'un tres haut niveau de vie et la Cite-Etat est souvent surnommee « La Suisse d'Asie ». En 2009, Singapour affichait ainsi la plus forte concentration de millionnaires rapportes a la population totale devancant Hong Kong, la Suisse, le Qatar et le Koweit. Presentant une stabilite politique remarquable, Singapour est considere aujourd'hui comme une democratie autoritaire, avec la meme famille au pouvoir depuis l'independance. La Cite-Etat est donc consideree comme un pays pratiquant le liberalisme economique sans le liberalisme politique. La societe singapourienne est reputee pour son fort conservatisme.
